Italian catering equipment manufacturer, Zanolli, is celebrating the business’ 65th anniversary this year.
Known for producing pizza and bakery ovens, Zanolli also makes kneaders, mixers and pastry ovens, all of which are sold only through bakery and catering equipment supplier, Cater-Bake, in the UK.
Founded in 1952 by Giovanni Zanolli, the manufacturer firstly launched the Electropizza electric pizza oven which soon became a success, and allowed the business to expand on its products and create a range of pizza and bakery equipment.
Due to the company’s growth in Italy, it soon expanded into the European markets. Subsequently Zanolli created the Teorema, a stackable modular oven, and the Synthesis, said to be the first Italian ventilated tunnel oven.
The manufacturer’s design and production workshops have moved to Sommacampagna and Villafranca in Verona in recent years.
In the UK, Cater-Bake is the sole supplier of Zanolli equipment, including a range of gas and electric pizza ovens and bakery ovens, which have been manufactured to suit a range of catering and kitchen operator requirements.
Steven Lilley, head of sales at Cater-Bake, said: “Zanolli’s products have proven extremely popular amongst our customers for many years, and we have received many positive reviews and good feedback from catering companies alike.
“We believe in the success of Zanolli products and because we are sure of the quality of the product, we are happy to offer an extended 2 year warranty on all of the Zanolli products that we stock.
“We would like to congratulate Zanolli on 65 years in the industry, and we wish them many more happy successful years in the business.”
