Fumaiolo, a Romagna food company, produces piadina, fresh pasta and sauces. Craftsmanship, love for the region and passion for the gastronomic tradition have characterised operations since its foundation, in 1985.
In addition to the main factory in Alfero, which includes the production department, storage, raw material warehouses and offices, and the single-brand store in Bagno di Romagna, from 2019 Fumaiolo also opened a commercial branch in Cesena, over a total area of about 4000 square metres, with further prospects for expansion.
After having consolidated its presence in central and northern Italy, the company is ready to spread throughout the country and to explore the foreign market by focusing on the strength of Made in Italy and on the absolute quality of its products.
HOW WE WORK
Very rigorous safety standards are respected inside the pasta factory. Between one production cycle and another, the entire department is cleaned and sanitised, to ensure that the products do not retain any trace of the previous processing.
Fumaiolo was created in Alfero in 1985 as Salumificio del Fumaiolo, by Tiziano Caminati, who decided to make use of the butchering tradition of the Romagna Apennines to offer high-quality seasoned meats.
Following the passion for authentic cuisine, Salumificio expanded to include Pastificio: in 1999, it started producing traditional handmade pasta without any preservatives, as well as piadina flatbreads. Today, a lighter piadina, with corn oil instead of lard, and packaged in wedges, is still the company’s flagship product.
In 2001 Pastificio began to collaborate with some GDO brands. With the new range available, a range dedicated to quality Catering is also being launched, to put the experience of the Romagna region at the service of catering and the search for the best raw materials. Thanks to the success of the products, in 2012 the business expanded and was transferred to a new factory equipped with large storage facilities.

In 2015, to celebrate thirty years of activity, the company chose a more fresh and immediate brand, in line with its products, simply Fumaiolo. It redesigned the Internet website and strengthened its presence on social networks, collaborating with established chefs and food bloggers and offering customers useful tips and recipes with which to prepare their own specialities.
