A story of tradion, craftmanship…

mamma emma was launched in 2013 by Master Srl, founded in 1992.
From the early days, the owners of Master, Adriano Bianco and Giovanni Favretto, have combined their engineering knowledge with their love for good food. This union has given rise to the concept of industrial craftsmanship. Thanks to their technical training, the two partners managed to designing in-home most of the machinery needed to create a production process that follows every stage of the traditional recipe.
The result? Today mamma emma is proud to export the originality of Italian dumpling to over 15 countries on 5 continents.

mamma emma's commitment to the environment

our committment for sustainability is tangible:

  • 100% Green Energy: we use only energy and gas from renewable sources. Thanks to the collaboration with Dolomiti Energia, our plant is powered only by hydroelectric power plants, located in the Dolomites. Thanks to this choice, from 2014 to 2019 we avoided the emission of 5.972,16 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
  • Photovoltaic plant: inaugurated in 2013, it allowed us to save about 5% of total electricity with a lower theoretical emission of carbon dioxide equal to 54 tons per year
  • Activities to reduce environmental impact: we prefer to use, where possible, FSC paper and cardboard from renewable forests and produced without chlorine. We also transfer industrial waste (processing waste) to other production facilities.
