Fortini® biscuits were born in 1991 in Forte dei Marmi.
Between 1994 and 2001 they began to be widespread in Italy thanks to word of mouth and careful commercial policy.
In the same 2001 Fortini® were the first of the Italian artisan biscuits to be packaged in monoportion (without adding preservatives and aromas) and this allowed a great increase in production, both for the Italian market and for the first exports.
During the great financial crisis of 2008, the company was purchased by Giovanni Francalancia Vivanti Siebzehner and after difficult years today it is experiencing a second youth, also thanks to the entrance to the new company of Giovanni's sons, Silvia and Riccardo.
Since 2022 the company has abandoned the use of plastic in its own packaging and today the film with which the monoportion is made is made of 100% compostable material certified by TUV.
Today the company manually produces over 1.750,000 biscuits per year, serving hundreds of shops in Italy and Europe.
