About the Brand

Milanese bakers’ mastery was renown-they used to be called
“prestinée” and “uffellèe” ; and Paolo Biffi was one of them. In
1852 he opened his “Offelleria Biffi” in Corso Magenta and shortly
became so important not only for the Milanese people but also
for those gourmets who travelled all over Italy. Shortly after the
Italian Unification, rightly in 1866, Paolo Biffi was appointed Her
Majesty’s confectioner. In the following year, he inaugurated the
first “Gran Caffè Biffi”, in center Milan. An elegant café and
restaurant that very soon became one of the symbols of fin de
siècle, and that made of Biffi brand a mark of food quality and
refinement for Milanese people. The intuition of the founder, Pietro
Casella, was to believe in the market evolution of new ambient
and chilled products. In this period we launched a new premium
line ; the concept of handmade care on which Biffi production is
based, found its best expression into a wide range : for example,
in 2010 we created the first chilled organic pesto, that was gluten-free
and GMO-free. This start was then followed by a whole range of
sauces. Nowadays vocation to innovation still inspires our Corporate
activity, since Formec Biffi keeps on trying to anticipate the market needs.
