In each mouthful of Tenuta Margherita’s risotto cookies, you can taste more than one hundred years of history. In fact, Tenuta Margherita was founded in 1904 in a small farmhouse in the Piedmont region of northeastern Italy. Starting as just “an idea and a few simple emotions,” year after year, Tenuta Margherita became synonymous with quality and trust for its customers. Their rice mill is located in Desana, near Vercelli, one of the oldest cities in northern Italy. It’s no surprise that Tenuta Margherita was founded here: Vercelli is a notorious hub for rice cultivation, due to the favorable climactic conditions of the Po valley. The incredible sweet rice cookies with orange flavor are the perfect healthy snack, and their gluten free as well!
THE PAST IN THEIR MINDS AND THE FUTURE IN THEIR EYES
“Care” is key in every step in the processing of the rice. The company describes itself as “unchanged, just like the emotions that, after a hundred years, still characterize our work”. Tenuta Margherita would never have been so successful if had it not honored tradition. However, the company remains aware of the challenges and the evolution Tenuta Margherita must face in order to grow.
FROM THE FIELD TO THE TABLE
Tenuta Margherita's owner, Davide Brusa, and his team pay close attention to the rice through all stages of its production, taking care of every detail. “Slowness and gentleness are essential to our company,” says Brusa. “Only in this way is it possible to achieve excellence: the principles of our work come together in these two words. Our attention to detail and our historical machines define the essence of our work: the pursuit of perfection."
