Innovations and advantages
With its 35-year experience in the confectionery market, the company has acquired a deep know-how in the field of chocolate and sugared almonds manufacturing. The key issue for the company is the offer of a wide range of products in different flavours and shapes, suitable for every kind of event. In order to provide high quality confectionery products, the company uses selected ingredients, manufactured according to traditional recipes and preserving the traditional confectionery production. The chocolate comes from carefully selected plantations and the company uses pure chocolate, cocoa mass and cocoa butter without added fats. It works chocolate using both modern machineries and the best artisanal chocolate art, always respecting the strictest hygienic standards. Sugared almonds are produced according to the ancient Italian tradition, using only PDO (protected designation of origin) certified almonds coming from the Sicily region. Dragées contain only the finest dark, milk or white chocolate without additives or preservatives. Depending on flavours, the company adds PGI (protected geographic indication) certified hazeluts harvested in the Piemonte region or Sicilian oranges. At the moment, the company is launching a new Fairtrade and Organic Chocolate Line, to promote fair trading practices. Its aim is to contribute to the creation of better working conditions, social development and environment protection.
