Founded in 1960 by Tarcisio Zorzi, Panificio Zorzi has been founded starting from its consolidated experience in bread making.
The first plant was opened nearby Rovereto, and then moved in Brentino Belluno, in the province of Verona, in the wonderful Valdadige.
Panificio Zorzi, the first bakery opened in the area, continues growing thanks to the goodness of its bread, distributed throughout the Valdadige.
In the 80s the growth continues. The second generation begins, which in the following years starts leading the company.
The 90s mark the turning point, Gianni Zorzi, son of the founder, creates the famous Grissino Valdadige.
Combining delightfulness of fresh bread and the increasing outdoor consumption, thanks to the great intuition the Grissino Valdadige became one of the most appreciated product of the territory.
