ABOUT US

RECIPES OF LOVE

In 1978 we decided to fulfill a dream. A dream to bring to the households of the consumers the best pastry a one can taste.

Our company has a Danish heritage since its foundation. It is part of our DNA.
We initiated our operation producing Swiss Rolls in 1978 by acquiring this technology and know-how from Denmark. This was further enrooted by the continuous investment in Danish technologies to produce many other products that are part of our Portfolio such as, Butter Cookies, Toasts and Family Cakes.

We brought together many renown bakery traditions and have stayed true to them since then. We have widened our know-how by complementing our range of products with Italian origin products, such as Puff Pastry, Boudoirs and Crackers as well.

We have built a production capacity, investing in the quality certifications and competitiveness to be able to better serve our clients and our consumers.

Today, after over 40 years, we know that was the beginning of a great love affair.
This love joins traditional techniques to new technologies, selecting the best possible ingredients and respecting the traditions we bring to our consumers a distinctive, honest and deliciously tasteful product to enjoy.

This recipe has kept us in love with what we do, and we believe that it’ll make you fall in love with our products too.

One stop shop is a definition we give to what we are able to offer to our clients: provide any retailer with a wide range of products with a very high level of quality standards that can be catered to the consumer needs anywhere in the world.

We acquired various technologies in various parts of the world to strengthen what we offer:
