The biggest producer of soluble coffee substitutes in Italy

Crastan company was founded in 1870 by the Swiss entrepreneur Luzio Crastan, who established a little factory in Pontedera (Pisa), in the heart of Tuscany, for the production of roasted coffee substitutes (cereal coffee, chicory coffee, etc.). Today the company, still managed by the same family, has grown to become a leader in the sector, and is one of the biggest producers of instant coffee substitutes in Europe. Thanks to the experience gained in over 140 years in the sector and using the most advanced production technologies, over the years Crastan has developed a vast range of foodstuffs products to go with its main product line: instant coffee, instant cappuccino, chocolate drink mix, instant tea, effervescent granules, mash potato flakes and much more.
