History

From the heart of the Italian region of Emilia to Milan.


More than 60 years of quality and love for good pasta.

It all started in 1956, when Euride Zini, born in Reggio Emilia, took the traditions of her region and all her love for good pasta to Milan, where she moved and founded a small pasta factory. She produced handmade fresh pasta that, according to tradition, was to be eaten immediately or to be frozen. 

Today Zini Prodotti Alimentari is still following this tradition, by respecting original recipes and avoiding any artificial ingredients, including colorants and additives. For product conservation Zini exclusively uses one single natural element: cold. In its cutting-edge Milan pasta factory, all freshly-made products are cooked and frozen very quickly, to preserve all their taste and freshness for a long time.
