Established in Bologna in 1796, Majani is one of Italy’s oldest chocolate companies and is listed in the Gold Register among the 150 ‘Companies that have made Italy’. The company is famed for having won the competition to create a chocolate to launch Fiat’s Tipo 4 in 1911 – a cremino with 4 layers.
Majani’s Sfoglia was the first chocolate in a solid form to be sold in Italy. Created in 1832 it is a crisp and crumbly textured bar.
Today Majani creates its chocolate masterpieces still following the traditional production methods and the ancient recipes handed down from generation to generation. The historic expertise of the Company is reflected today as yesterday in the excellent quality of its products which continue to sweeten the palates of Italians and chocolate lovers everywhere.
Majani does not use semi-finished products: the secret of its unique taste comes from the selection of the best varieties of cocoa beans, from different territories, grown in 20 different areas of origin. It is their unique aromas that form the complex and harmonious bouquet of Majani chocolate. After drying in the sun, the beans, in jute bags, arrive at the Majani factory.
The company continues to create innovative and exciting products. Majanis chocolate tortellino is a tribute to the typical dish of their native Bologna.
