Who We Are
SOMETHING GOOD BEARS FRUIT
Can the sweetness of a territory be evoked?
For us in B. Langhe, work has begun every day with this question since 1977, and we always try to give it an answer as if it were the very first time.
What we want to give each time is the spirit of a land which has a sense for recognising good things and things that are made well. At the centre of our world is Alba, an Italian gourmands’ capital. Here we were born and you find us here still. All around us are the Langhe, a precious treasure trove of harmony and knowledge, recognised as a Unesco World Heritage site.
From the many castles dotting the gentle, sinuous hillsides, princes descend, with ladies and jesters, laden with delicacies. The air is fragrant with the finest natural ingredients: the character of the best cocoa, the inebriating aromas of choice liqueurs, the fullness of the Tonda Gentile hazelnut. An antique merry-go-round of deep and lasting flavours, enfolded in a style which never fades. On the contrary, it renews itself. This is the very heartbeat of this land, the perfect marriage between the rigour of Piedmont confectionery and the creative verve of the firm B.Langhe.
You just need to choose. Taste one and allow yourself a sensation of intimate pleasure. Like that of a long embrace, like that of a well-told story, like that of a love so sweet …
You’ll feel like licking your fingers.
IT ALL BEGINS…
It all began a long time ago, far from the bright lights, in the shelter of an artisan laboratory, where the secrets of the art of confectionery are handed down through the generations.
These were the seventies, and B. Langhe was a small biscuit manufacturer with a street-front in one of the central streets of Alba. It was above all tanacity and the will to work, creativity and entrepreneurial courage that led this little workshop to become a very solid company which exports its products worldwide.
That same spirit daily animates the production plant of B.Langhe, nowadays located outside the city centre but still in Alba, the wine and food heart of the Langhe.
