Crema Lombardi was founded by Romano Lombardi in Pisa, Tuscany, in 1968. Italy was riding the wave of an economic boom at the time, and Lombardi saw a gap in the market for ready sauces for people with no time to cook at home. He also understood that if his products were to be a success, they had to be made with the finest ingredients, following the time-honoured methods of the Italian culinary tradition.
Artisan Qualit Carefully selected ingredientsY: Today, 50 years later, a second generation keeps Romano Lombardi's vision alive. Production now takes place in a modern, 1200 m2 factory using the most advanced machinery, but we remain faithful to our artisan origins. We select almost exclusively Italian, and if possible locally-sourced, ingredients, and share our founder's passion for our work.
