Established in Bologna in 1796 and listed in the Gold Register among the 150 'Companies that have made Italy', Majani 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 are one of the few bean-to-bar chocolate producers; their chocolate is produced with the best raw cocoa beans which are roasted in their workshop in Crespellano a small town about 10 miles west of Bologna. Artisans then create all their products using their own traditional recipes from the last 224 years.
Founded by Teresa Majani in 1796 under the name of "Laboratory of Sweet Things". Its first home was a small artisan workshop next to the Basilica of San Petronio and soon became one of the finest chocolate makers in Europe. Over the years Majani has been honoured with prestigious awards including those on the occasion of the Universal Expositions of Paris (1867 and 1878), Vienna (1873) and Milan (1881). The company became an official supplier of the Royal House of Savoy during the years of the birth of the Kingdom of Italy, and more recently received the plaque "Company that has made the history of Italy".
