A big hug. Slitti is here!

A big hug. Slitti is here!

Here we are. In a complicated moment, we want to go back to doing what was previously natural and now better avoided. Remember our hugs. Here we are with Andrea Slitti, at the last awards ceremony of the International Chocolate Awards where Andrea once again confirmed his incredible talent. Still today Slitti produces and ships following the careful and scrupulous current health procedures. Because Slitti is chocolate and chocolate is happiness and we can never stop looking for happiness, even in a hard and dramatic moment like this. Go ahead, with chocolate!

Together against Covid-19. Thank you all.

by Umberto - Sunday, March 15, 2020

Together against Covid-19. Thank you all.

Thanks to all those who, in these three weeks, have worried about us and who have given us their solidarity. Coming back to Italy, after the last international events we attended, we were able to better understand how dangerous this virus is. We have postponed the "bean to bar" courses in the Italian Fbm Area and followed the important hygienic and behavioral precautions that COVID-19 imposes. In Italy the streets are deserted and people just have to go from home to work. Fbm continues to produce, following an important and delicate attention to the safety of all our fantastic operators. We want to give everyone advice. Do not underestimate the virus because it is not invincible but it is really very dangerous. If people understand it, it will pass quickly and we will all return to our passion with the right serenity. Thank you so much.
