The TRE SPADE brand has been on the market since 1894. At the end of the nineteenth century it was owned by the Fratelli Bertoldo Company of Forno Canavese (Torino) and was a significant producer of hot-forged hardware tools. When drinking coffee became fashionable, the Company started its own production of coffee grinders and became the biggest Italian manufacturer (and one of the two leading European Companies) of this beautiful items. Its coffee grinders were (and are) considered the top quality ones, and were exported for many years all over Europe, United States, Japan, Turkey, Australia, etc.
TRE SPADE has always closely followed the requirements of the market and the requests of consumers. For this reason over the years production has evolved, expanded and diversified. “Old style” products such as pepper mills and manual and electrical coffee grinders, always conceal the exclusive conical TRE SPADE burrs in special hardened steel. A number prizes to these as the best performing products by far. The electrical or manual tomato juicer has been a successful product, in Italy and all over the world.
FACEM then specialised in articles for processing and preserving meat. Manual mincers were followed by electrical minccers, mixers, sausage fillers, slicers and bone band saws, making the TRE SPADE brand one of the world leaders in the sector. The most recently introduced product is the vacuum sealer which is the equal of other machines in preserving food, with a particular focus on holistic modes of working which preserve intact the organoleptic qualities of food, guaranteeing it a long lifespan at the same time.
