Flamigni started in 1930 as a pastry and coffee shop in Forli, in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. Three brothers, Armando, Lieto and Aurelio Flamigni saw great success with their traditional Italian pastries. It was Marco Buli, son-in-law of one of the Flamigni brothers, who encouraged the company to expand. They started to make nougat and eventually panettones, bringing their passion for innovation and high-quality ingredients to every aspect. They sum up their philosophy in the following way: ‘At Flamigni we’re at home to innovation, but only if it comes with improvement’.

Why we Love Flamigni Panettone
It takes three whole days to perfect each Flamigni panettone. And each hour counts towards the final flavour, texture and aroma. The recipe is a slow-leavened technique which uses a mother yeast, just like a sourdough bread recipe. This gives the panettone the signature 'tear-apart' texture. Plus, each Flamigni panettone is shaped by hand, and scored by the baker before it goes into the oven.
And Flamigni use the finest ingredients they can find, sourcing the very best fruit and chocolate to create their final flavour combinations. They make wonderful Christmas gifts.
