A bit of history...
When great-grandfather Luigi Guffanti, in 1876, began to season Gorgonzola cheese, his brilliant intuition was to purchase an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, in the Varese province.
In the mine, with its temperature and humidity constant year-round, the cheese matured so well that Luigi quickly cornered the markets: his sons, Carlo and Mario, at the beginning of the 1900′s, exported as far as Argentina and California, lands of Piedmont and Lombard emigration.
Maximum attention to the handcrafted quality of the cheeses and passionate care taken in the refinement process mark the proud Guffanti Fiori family tradition handed, down for five generations.
Experience gained by processing the Gorgonzola has gradually been transferred to the Tomas of the Ossola Alpine pastures, the Reggiano Parmesan, all the cheeses, Italian, French, English, Spanish, Portuguese…
At the origin of it all, an old abandoned silver mine, that at a certain point, began to produce another precious good, one derived from milk.
Today the company has become, gradually, the reference point of conscious consumers in search of the typical in the world of artisanal cheeses, in an area that embraces today increasingly Italy, part of Europe and non-European realities (USA, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, but more recently India and UAE).
It can be said that a company like Guffanti is today, on the stage of Italian as a small but fierce ambassador of our traditions and specificity of our craft.
