The company


Food is our passion



Picture this: 250 days of sunshine a year. Sounds pretty good, right?
We’re lucky enough that our company’s location just happens to enjoy that many days of sunshine.
All the more reason to include the ‘sun’ in our corporate image: to express our gratitude.
We’re based at the heart of the South Tyrolean Dolomites, surrounded by fresh air, lush green forests, unspoilt mountains and crystal clear lakes.
And our regional unity is reflected in our range of select specialties.

Gilli GmbH has stood for high-quality specialty foods, baked goods and jams since 1968.

The grandfathers of today’s owners, Albert Gilli and Julius Kritzinger, were true pioneers in the specialty foods and grocery trade in South Tyrol.
It all started in their traditional grocery retail shop in Cardano, which also included its own grain mill and a small, artisanal coffee roaster.
The farmers from neighbouring valleys delivered wood by horse-drawn carts to the various sawmills in Cardano, then proceeding to buy grain and other food. The purchases were paid on a Sunday at the local inn after mass.

At the time, we sold our products exclusively in South Tyrol.
In the ‘70s, however, our distribution grew exponentially outside the province thanks to the committed work of Herbert Gilli. We soon covered all of northern Italy.
Today, Gilli covers all of Italy’s modern food retail trade and baking needs.

Our aim is to be an innovative, representative partner specialising in select, high-quality baked goods and specialty foods which are prepared with love following traditional, genuine recipes.


The highest Quality is our passion.

We assurance our high standard by permanent quality controls and continuous exchange with customers, suppliers and partners.

To ensure that the goods are delivered fresh to the customer, we guarantee professional storage and optimal transports by using the following standards:
IFS Logistics, ISO 9001:2015 and HACCP
