A family passion lasting more than 50 years.
Today, like yesterday.
Father Giovanni, mother Maria and 6 brothers. Four began working in dairies and in 1960 they signed their first contract as master cheese makers.
Faraboli Formaggi was born in 1971 out of the passion that the two founders, Rino and Silvio, have always had for the age-old culture of making cheese – and which, in the province of Parma, has become a true art -.
Having become master cheesemakers in the production of Parmigiano Reggiano, the two founders decided to set up their own business on the Via Emilia, between Parma and Fidenza, an ancient and privileged territory for the production and aging of cheeses.
With Giovanni’s entry, the company chose to specialize in the research of the most exclusive single-crop productions of Parmigiano Reggiano, becoming a reference point of quality for the lovers of these excellences.
At the dawn of 50 years, the grandchildren of the founders redesign the company’s image, with the aim of innovating in the wake of tradition and communicating Faraboli’s identity to the world as a collector of Italian cheeses.
Why do we like to refer to ourselves as Cheese Collectionists?
Deep down, the collectionist is a romantic, who manages to reconcile what is apparently antithetical: passion with rationality. On the one hand we have the irrational sphere, which has a nourishing research function; on the other we have the more analytical and rigorous dimension, which allows us to evaluate and place everything in its place by establishing appropriate hierarchies and connections.
