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.

The beginnings of mamma emma


The selection of raw materials
Our experience has led us to select only particular varieties of potatoes, ideal for producing gnocchi of superior quality and consistency.

Our numbers
We process every day 15,000 kg of fresh potatoes which we wash, select, steam cook with the skin to keep the organoleptic properties intact, peel and squeeze one by one.

Maximum attention to quality


Our attention to quality is expressed at all times: from the continuous dialogue with suppliers to the acquisition of internationally recognized certifications such as: FSSC 22000, BRCGS, IFS and ICEA.
A fundamental goal in quality management has been achieved thanks to the improvement of technologies, the continuous training of specialized personnel and the continuous search for innovative solutions to improve production processes.

Our products undergo a pasteurization process that avoids microbiological contamination and makes the use of preservatives unnecessary.

Ideal for a genuine meal, mamma emma’s gnocchi are ideal to satisfy the whole family, providing a correct diet for the growth of children.

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.
