since 1894 a simply unique story!
It all started back in 1894, when Nicola Mucci started the first factory in the historic center of Andria, where the “Giovanni Mucci” Confetti Museum is currently located, recognized by the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and counted among the Italy.
Since then, he begins to produce chocolate, candies and sugared almonds, using the delicious Apulian almonds for the latter.
He invented “Mandorla Imperial”, a new, unique sugared almond made with the fine peeled almond “Fra Giulio”, known as “Avola di Puglia”, covered with a layer of white and lightly sugared chocolate.
Its evolution led, in the 1930s, to the creation of the famous “Tenerelli Mucci®”, still processed according to the original recipe, with Almonds from Toritto (BA) and “Hazelnuts from Piedmont IGP”, covered with dark, white and from a light layer of colored jam.
For an ever increasing production, the enterprising Nicola has a first large factory built, equipping it with brand new systems for the manufacture of chocolate, sugared almonds and candies. This new factory has over eighty employees, three quarters of whom are girls involved in the decoration of sugared almonds, in the wrapping of candies, chocolates and Easter eggs.
In 1934, due to the crisis of ’29, production was reduced and Nicola was forced to downsize the company and move back to the first factory.
Giovanni Mucci inherits the factory, started by his father Nicola, developing the current Mucci Giovanni brand since 1894.
Soon the products cross regional and national borders becoming famous for inimitable goodness and taste. In 1975 the company passed into the hands of Giovanni’s children who, with unchanged passion, took care of and handed down not only the family secrets, but above all the love and enthusiasm for their work.
The current Mucci heirs, Giovanni’s sons and grandchildren, inaugurate the modern factory in Trani, where, still today, simply unique sugared almonds and dragées are produced, according to the canons and craft methods of the high confectionery tradition.
“Quality” is the categorical imperative of a family that has always dedicated attention, passion and research in the creation of small masterpieces of confectionery art to offer in the happy moments of life.
A family that cultivates a noble and elevated ambition: to increase the emotion of a party.
With over 120 years of activity, the company continues to receive awards, which attest to the high quality of its products.
Refined and original combinations, entrepreneurial creativity and professional honesty are the basis of the preparation of the countless specialties, all made with carefully selected raw materials among the best in the world.
The current heirs are jealous keepers of the secrets that contain stories of sweetness and pleasure, capable of generating intense emotions.
A wonderful list of delicacies, capable of satisfying not only the most demanding connoisseurs, but all those who believe in quality without compromise. Within each sugared almond soul, uniqueness and knowledge are contained.
