Founded in 1985 at Brembate (Bergamo) as a laboratory for the study of fluid bed granulation technology and its applications for the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industry, Fine Foods & Pharmaceuticals N.T.M. very soon started to produce excipients and semifinished products.
Early 1989 the start for a "full time" activity as a contract manufacturer for oral solid forms dedicated to pharmaceutical and nutraceutical markets was given.
Later, new facilities for pharmaceuticals at Brembate (1991) and for nutraceuticals at Zingonia-Verdellino (1997), were opened. Over the years plant engineering has followed, and was adapted to, market requirements, strengthening in all solid oral forms (powder, granules,film-coated or plain tablets, hard-gel capsules) and virtually in every kind of packaging: sachets, bags, bottles, blisters, jars, tubes and strips. To complete pharmaceutical services another production plant was acquired early 2008 in Nembro (Bergamo), for toll-manufacturing production of tablets, film- and sugar-coated tablets as well as hard-gelatine capsules.
Last but not least Fine Foods & Pharmaceuticals N.T.M. installed lines for producing and packaging of monodose bottles for liquids, with or without cap for powders.
Main technology at Fine Foods & Pharmaceuticals N.T.M. is fluid bed granulation, by which instant soluble powders and effervescent forms are produced (granules, tablets).
Today Fine Foods & Pharmaceuticals N.T.M. is the biggest independent Italian contract manufacturer for nutraceuticals and an important player in the pharmaceutical market, with more than 330 employees, more than 150 customers and a global turnover of €80 million.
