Our Producer - Fiasconaro

The Fiasconaro family story started back in 1953 in Sicily when Mario Fiasconaro gradually turned his small ice cream parlour into a thriving confectionary and pastry business. His three children, brothers Fausto, Martino e Nicola, little more than children, helped him in their free time and learnt the craft. Today the Fiasconaro brothers head the company that bears their name: Fausto is the showroom manager, Martino leads the administration, Nicola is the award-winning pastry chef. In the nineties, it was Nicola who developed a Sicilian version of the most traditional cake of Northern Italy - the Panettone. 

Today Fiasconaro is a modern, growing company recognised both nationally and internationally, passionate about the tastes of their island and about creating artisan products using traditional ingredients and methods.
