Remembering the teachings of our territory, which has upheld farming traditions and kept the secrets of ancient recipes for thousands of years, we work with care and passion, selecting the best ingredients in order to offer artisanal products with no added flavourings or preservatives.
Our hand-rolled breadsticks are the result of the meticulous selection of the ingredients and a slow production process. We use flours from the Sobrino Mill which, just like in the olden days, stone grinds traditional varieties of prestigious cereals.
Long natural leavening, hand rolling and short baking at a high temperature make the breadsticks fragrant and tasty, ready to accompany your aperitifs or be served with your meals.

Curious facts: the birth of the breadstick
Hand-rolled breadsticks were born in Turin in 1679, at the court of the Royal House of Savoy. Vittori Amedeo TT, the king’s son, couldn’t digest bread dough, so his father asked his bakers to create a small, thin and more easily digestible type of bread. And so the “Ghersa” was born, and this name generated the term “Grissino”, or breadstick.
