Our History

Our Group’s history stretches back nearly a century, to a small bakery in the centre of Verona. Over the years we have transformed our love of tradition and artisan craftsmanship into business know-how, through a process that has included both technological innovation and strategic acquisitions of world famous Italian brands. Today we bring delicious products using Italian flavours to consumers in 70 countries.
