- When did you start?
- Why did you start?
Tell us about your goals
I love fine food and enjoyed the abundance of fine eateries in SWFL. However, it was very difficult to find high quality, natural, artisan bread and pastries in SW Florida as found in Europe. Born in Switzerland, good bread and pastry have a very long tradition. Introducing fine, authentic European, artisan bakery products to SW Florida was the conclusion. All natural, no additives, no preservatives, GMO-free.
