Mental has a mint and licorice smelling history, a passion smelling history. Starting from the traditional peppermints, which represent the milestones of our production, until the all-fired tastes and consistencies we are presently creating. Our roots are well-established in the land of our Country and our customers know us very well.. because they bring us in their pockets.
For almost eighty years, our flavours and our tastes have been pleasing non only Italians’ palates, that is because we gradually make way in the rest of Europe and all over the World, and also who can’t speak our language can taste us. For this reason, Mental holds one of the most important positions in the demanding tastes of our customers, who already knows us like the backs of their hands.
Fassi S.p.A was founded in Turin in 1936 thanks to the diligence and the entrepreneurial capabilities of his founder, Lorenzo Torassa.
Originally conceived as a pharmaceutical company, its change to an highly specialised production in confectionery sector was a naturally end market of the company’s increased success in this field, especially thanks to the unmistakable green box of Mental.
Mental brand comes back to its pharmaceutical origins: as in the first few years of Fassi Group’s existence, Mental dedicates a new pharmaceutical line to the research of the best raw materials for the production of pralines, toffees and pills intended to pharmacies.
Observance for tradition means also reproducing packaging and old recipes, joined with experience and the level of quality achieved in its almost eighty years of history.
