Callipo Tuna was founded in 1913 by Giacinto Callipo in Calabria, Italy. For more than 100 years, as a family-owned company, they have been considered one of the best canned tuna brands in the country. In 1926, Callipo was even named as the official supplier to the Royal Household, and in 2014, Italy issued a commemorative stamp celebrating the Italian tuna brand. (The € 0.80 stamp was part of the Excellence of the Productive and Economic System postage series.) Callipo attributes their success to their guiding principle that quality food is “a way of being.” They have now become a leading producer of Mediterranean tuna and other seafood products as well. Their tuna is dolphin safe, is in total accordance with the protections of the habitat of the sea, and of course, is absolutely delicious!
