Scarpato boasts a more than 125 year old history. It has produced Panettone, Pandoro, and sweets for special occasions for a niche market since 1888. No less than 3 days of calm, care, and respect for natural cycles are needed in order to get a Panettone by Scarpato. During this time, in addition to high quality raw materials, the basic ingredient of the success of Scarpato is used: the natural yeast consisting of a mixture of flour and water, fermented by a micro-flora of yeasts and virtuous lactic acid bacteria, which makes Panettone tasty and aromatic, as well as highly digestible and storable.

«We have many customers for whom we have developed tailor-made products and customized recipes. Among the many variants we propose, we remember Panettone with olive oil, Panettone with a filling containing grappa, and Panettone with rice flour, which we produce respecting both artisan processing and confectionery art. We are continually looking for new eye-catching packaging, diversified and fashionable: for each recipe we offer both a gift version, with luxury boxes, bags made of satin, ribbons, and decorative pack, and the simpler version, consisting of cellophane and ribbon, for the customers who appreciate our quality without frills.
