A tradition of craftsmanship in knitting

Whilst Ennio has been supplying quality netting and casing solutions to the meat, poultry and smallgoods industry for the past quarter of a century, it may be little known that the skill behind these unique products is the knitting expertise the Mercuri family has garnered for the last half a century.

Husband and wife team, Gervasio and Giovanna Mercuri brought their design experience to Australia from Italy in the 1950’s and founded Mercuri Knitwear in Adelaide. As Giovanna and Gervasio built their business into a significant company, their quality garments won numerous Australian awards.

But as manufacturing declined in Australia, the Mercuri family began to forge a new direction. They formed Ennio Pty Ltd in 1983, using their renowned skills to produce elastic netting and fabric casings for the meat trade. It is this tradition of craftsmanship that continues with products designed by Ennio International until this day, 50 years later.

Foodpro 2008 in July marks the celebration of 50 Years of Knitting for Ennio. At stand 3118, Mercuri family will discuss how their products are designed to assist with all meat packaging requirements.

New innovations on display will be Bubble-Net Patterns, a range of knitted all-in-one casings with excellent smoke penetration. Square, honeycomb, honeycomb clear and diamond patterns allowing visual effects to differentiate products.

In addition, there are smoke variations on popular knitted casings Merc-Net, Smoke-Net and fibrous casings along with range extensions to Netted Casing.

Ennio will also be introducing their new National Sales Manager, Tracy Greenaway, who has been in the Meat Packaging industry in various capacities over the last 20 years and will be on hand to assist in tailoring individual meat packaging solution.
