Their secret? Only excellent ingredients and traditional recipes.
Two brothers, one passion
Born and bred in Tuscany, Riccardo and Massimiliano Lunardi are two brothers working together in their family company. In 1966 their parents founded a bakery and a small food shop. "We moved our first steps in the bakery and food shop, where we had our first insight on this world. However, we continue to learn something new, every day", they recount.
A family tradition with an eye towards innovation
Riccardo and Massimiliano Lunardi describe themselves as "two brothers born and raised surrounded by the beauty of Tuscany, passionate about the wonderful products from the most beautiful regions of Italy." Today they bake delicious biscuits, traditional Cantucci, leavened cakes, and baked goods. Genuinely passionate about taste and hand-made delicacies, Riccardo and Massimiliano continue to carry on the family tradition with an eye towards innovation.
From Tuscany to the world
Lunardi's headquarter is in Quarrata, a small town in the Province of Pistoia (Tuscany), less than 20 miles from Florence. Today Lunardi dives into the national and international scene with high-quality, artisan food. Their products are sold worldwide; they can be found, among the others, at Harrod's in London, Rinascente in Milan, Käfer in Munich, and at the Ferragamo-owned restaurants in Florence.
Chocolate is the king
Lunardi's signature delicacy is the chocolate biscuit. This cookie is famous for its big and delicious chunks of chocolate. It is a special recipe where chocolate encounters the dough of the crumbly Tuscan Cantucci. Its chocolate chunks make the experience even more delightful.
Almond the queen
Another product of excellence is the traditional almond Cantucci. Cantucci is one of the most traditional recipes of Tuscan cuisine. Lunardi adds a little bit of organic butter to obtain a softer and tasty result.
Study, research, and selection of suppliers
The Lunardi brothers devote meticulous care to the selection of ingredients as well as that of their suppliers. "We were born and raised in Tuscany: a land full of tastiness and wonderful landscapes – they say - Maybe this is the reason why we are so prone to taste and beauty!".
Lunardi is an eco-friendly company. They use recyclable paper bags and 100% recycled paper boxes for their products. This is definitely one more reason to choose Lunardi products.
