History

Our great story starts in a small neighbourhood bakery. A story of dreams, effort, and joy; all with a single goal: creating a product of the highest quality, with loving care, in an artisanal way. Since then, we have kept innovating, growing, and improving for our customers, always preserving the values that turned us into what we are.
