Our history begins in 1948 in a small village named “La Stella”, where Nello Caporicci, in a small artisanal laboratory, dreamt of collecting the most authentic flavours of our beautiful land.
At the beginning the Company took the name of its first site, so it was called “La Stella”. Gradually the name was shortened, with just the initial letters “LS”, then the practice to pronouce the name in full, so the name ElleEsse.
For over 60 years the Caporiccis have been following that dream, turning that small laboratory into a leader Company, capable of pairing technology with the respect for tradition and our splendid region, a land rich in precious fruits.



Our philosophy can be summarized in three words: tradition, innovation, and passion. Tradition is the smell of the meal made by our grandmothers, the authentic taste of the fruits of the earth, the respect of the seasonality of the raw materials cooked according to time-honoured recipes.
Innovation is the wish to improve ourselves day by day, the continuous search for new techniques to improve our products, keeping the original richness of each individual raw ingrededient. Passion is the thing that let us love our job everyday, which encourages us to accept ever more new challenges and the strength to overcome them.


Just like “nouvelle cuisine”, we too are always looking for new techniques and ideas in order to offer new sensorial experiences.
New ingredients and techniques are tested every day to give our customers the perfect combination between original recipes and the latest market requirements.



Our Company is made up of professionalism and seriousness, respect for traditions and ongoing research for the innovation, but above all it is made up of people.
The history of ElleEsse is a family story. Each of our collaborators is, first of all, a friend who shares with us the love for this work and the desire to do it at the best.
