Pai historical timeline from their website:
It is in Italy of the economic miracle, of the first summer exoduses, of the FIAT 500, of the first miniskirts and of Carosello that PAI (Industrial Food Products) was born in Novara: it is only the beginning of a story that accompanies Italians to the present day .
An example of entrepreneurial intuition, creativity and research, values that have remained unchanged over the years.
Poised between the fashionable frivolities, with flared trousers and flowered shirts and the dramatic events of the lead years, Italy is experiencing an intense decade. And while Mike Bongiorno and the prize-winning quizzes are depopulated on TV, the oil crisis moves on alternate plates and by bicycle on Sundays, the Italians at the table discover PAI chips as an indispensable and tasty side dish.
Italy found a smile in the rampant 1980s, with "Milan to drink" and paninari; with "Drive in" and Jane Fonda's aerobics. Bright colors, exaggerated shoulder straps, leg warmers and cotton hair.
The first great films with special effects arrive and PAI is depopulated with the trendiest promotions of the moment, from very cool beads to intergalactic robots.
The era of globalization has begun.
While Italy hosts the football world cup and on TV the songs of “Non è Rai” flow, the European Union is born as a vision of a world without borders and the internet shortens the distances from every corner of the planet. And PAI revolutionizes the consumption of potato chips by bringing the new tray packs to the tables of Italians.
With the new millennium, the old Lira retires to make way for the community currency, the euro; Facebook is born and everything and everyone becomes even closer. Technology upsets the world of work and daily life. But sport in Italy is always the protagonist and the National team wins the fourth world title in 2006 and PAI is at its side. The best with the best!
