Paneangeli translates as “the angel’s bread”. This Italian trademark is widely known throughout Europe. The brand’s story began with a tiny bakery shop in Cremona, which was destined to become a launching pad for the brand’s founder, Ettore Riccardi. The Paneangeli Company nearly disappeared during World War II, but managed to stay afloat and move to Genoa.
Over time, a single store and a bakery turned into the whole baking network, and in early 1980s the company entered the national markets.
Paneangeli has not departed from the usual panification to a confectionery industry. Nowadays, their major products are aimed at those who have a sweet tooth. Paneangeli cakes and festive pastries are well-known outside Italy. The brand also produces different edible cake decorations, baking powders, cake mixes, and other baking goods that have settled down in the kitchen arsenal of many housewives.
