Bauducco Foods is a multi-national food company and leading producer of baked goods in Brazil. The company was founded in Sao Paolo by Italian immigrant Carlo Bauducco in 1950. Today it continues to be run by a third generation of Bauduccos.
Carlo Bauducco was born near the Italian city of Turin in 1906. As a young man he learned a great deal about the food business while working at his family’s pastry shop. He and his wife soon opened their own coffee shop in downtown Turin during World War II. In 1948, Carlo and his family moved to Brazil. He began selling bread making machines to pastry shops in Sao Paulo. In selling his machines, he noticed few bakeries sold panettone. And more importantly, none were making panettone on a large scale. He seized the opportunity and began making panettones. Using his special recipe brought over from Italy, he and the rest of the Bauducco family have been doing so every holiday season since.

And patiently allow 52 hours to producing each individual panettone. In the last 60 years not much has changed to the process in which Bauducco Panettones are made.
