LC America, Inc. is the US subsidiary of Le Caselle s.r.l. Based in Pontevico (Northern Italy), Le Caselle is an Italian family-owned and -operated business founded in 1991. Combining extensive food manufacturing know-how and
innovative technology, Le Caselle sells its products across five continents, enjoying the highest level of recognition and credibility among snack food providers.
An increasing demand in the North American market led to the foundation of Lc America in Colfax, North Carolina, in 2011. Located in the heart of the Piedmont Triad, we are surrounded by important cities such as Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point, and the nearby international airport.
Using an extrusion process that is very similar to pasta production, we produce snack pellets from potatoes, cereals, vegetables and legumes. The whole process is carried out with the newest technology, ensuring outstanding, durable quality.
LC America is a B2B company that does not cater to the final consumers, but rather snack food producers. These producers either deep fry or cook, through a hot air expansion process, LC America’s semi-finished pellets, then package, re-brand, and market the final product. Quality is guaranteed by using only certified suppliers for raw materials, and a quality control system that encompasses the entire manufacturing process. LC America supplies customers with a wide range of potato, cereal, vegetable and legume-based semi-finished snacks. Our state-of-the-art technology allows a wide variety of customization, and LC America’s Research and Development team adjusts recipes to suit the customer’s specific needs.
The savory snack market is continuously growing worldwide, reaching globally over $90 billion a year. The US accounts for 1/3 of the world’s consumption of savory snack foods, making it the most important market. Snack pellets are an Italian technology that represents a small but significantly growing portion of the savory snacks market.
Both the successful results achieved so far as well as the continuously growing demand from our North American customers has brought about the setting up of a new branch of Le Caselle in the United States. LC America was founded in the US in 2011 and is headquartered in the City of High Point. The production plant began operations in January 2013.
