In the late 1940s, our grandfather Giuseppe Barazzoni joined his father as an apprentice and carried on the dairy tradition with passion and dedication.
In the 1950s, while continuing to help out at the dairy farm, our uncle and aunt Efrem and Imelde also opened the Barazzoni bakery in Bibbiano, and ran it for over forty years.
Our father Cinzio was also born in the 1950s and grew up in Corniano surrounded by the noise of milk canisters and butter churns.
We now combine our family’s dairy and bread-making experience, still in the exact same place, having spent our childhood with our grandparents from both sides, who were also master dairy farmers in our mountains.
We combined our love for Parmigiano Reggiano with our desire to make and innovate, blending together traditional principles with consumers’ current food needs.
This is why we created PARÈ, a crispy thin made with Parmigiano Reggiano aged for 24 months, handcrafted and baked in the oven.
This gave us the idea for “cheese-based bakery”, a line of products that we bake every day with the same hallmark passion and meticulous approach used in this region for the Parmigiano Reggiano production chain, staying true to our history, values and culture.
This is what we want to continue, drawing from the depth, flavour and organoleptic qualities which have made Parmigiano Reggiano the king of cheeses.
