This traditional Italian dessert company bears the name of its founder, Matilde Vicenzi, an Italian woman who took great pride in baking classic Italian cookies and pastries. The original shop opened in 1905 in Verona, Italy, with love and respect for traditional Italian recipes being the backbone of the business. The matriarch’s sense of entrepreneurship and devotion has been carried on by her descendants for over 100 years. Vicenzi still abides by their core values: natural, non-GMO ingredients, slow-baking, and fresh-out-the-oven packaging.
Today’s Matilde Vicenzi Products
While the Matilde Vicenzi brand is always searching for ways to improve upon their already top quality products, not much has changed in the past century when it comes to the original recipes. Vicenzi produces a range of traditional Italian desserts, including their classic puff pastries, amaretti cookies, ladyfingers, grisbi (filled shortbread cookies), cantuccini (mini biscotti), and wafer cookies. In keeping up with the times, they have also developed a gluten-free line of their beloved sweet snacks. Gift tins containing these Italian pastries and Italian cookies make lovely presents for special occasions. All Vicenzi products are certified Kosher.
Transparency, Ethics & Sustainability
Transparency is very important to this now-global family business. Since 2019, Vicenzi has made sustainability reports available on their website, to showcase their commitment to both society and the environment. Also readily available is the brand’s code of ethics; a continuing testament to the pioneering woman who started it all with her delicious Italian pastries!
