The sweeter side of life.

We’re Emmi Dessert Italia and we produce speciality desserts that everyone can enjoy. We’re the Italian subsidiary of the Swiss multinational Emmi. Together, it’s our mission to create value for our customers by producing delectable desserts that cater to everyone, whatever their dietary requirements.

But we never lose sight of the world and community we’re built on. Because at Emmi Dessert Italia, people are at the heart of what we do.

Back in 

we were Switzerland’s biggest dairy producer. Emmi Italia already had one foot in Italy and Italian consumers were familiar with our Tigre cheese brand. But we had a dream. We were set on becoming the world’s leading dessert company. It was certainly an ambitious target. Too ambitious, you could say. That’s why we decided to start with the home of good food, Italy. By harnessing its indulgent desserts, we knew we would reach our goal. Our adventure began when we acquired A-27, a key player in the cake and dessert market. Two years later it was the turn of Rachelli, leading organic and biodynamic ice cream producer. Then in 2017 we were joined by Italian Fresh Foods, which manufactures chilled desserts and exports them around the world. But our story has only just begun. There’s much more to come.

In 2018 we rebranded as Emmi Dessert Italia. We currently number 450 people and our factories produce a total of 20 product lines which we export to 46 countries.

Emmi is an independent group and Switzerland’s biggest dairy company. Its headquarters are in Lucerne. Following its widespread success in Switzerland, it is pursuing a careful acquisition strategy to drive international growth. It continuously optimises costs to ensure it maintains its strong competitive edge. To find out more visit
