Sperlari, Saila and Galatine are now historical brands of national interest

On the occasion of the 185th anniversary of the Italian confectionery company Sperlari, its three brands enter Italy’s Register of Historical Trademarks

The Italian confectionery company, Sperlari, has entered the Register of Historic Trademarks of National Interest established by Italy’s Ministry of Economic Development. The register also includes the Galatine brand – famous milk candy invented in Italy in 1956 and produced with 100% Italian milk in the Sperlari plant in Cremona – and Saila’s – a company founded in 1937 which nowadays produces 100% Italian licorice and mint in Abruzzo.

The recognition takes place on the occasion of the 185th birthday of the company, founded back in 1836 in a historic store in Cremona by entrepreneur Enea Sperlari. The company is now a leader in the Italian confectionery market and a symbol of Made in Italy throughout the world.

All of our brands – says CEO Piergiorgio Burei – have always been produced in our four plants in Italy with extensive use of Italian raw materials: the fruit of Sperlari, the milk of Galatine, and the mint and licorice of Saila.”
