Bringing Italian-Made Quality to America

Nutkao S.r.l. was founded in Italy in 1982 by Guiseppe Braida with the goal of creating private label creams, spreads, and finished products for retail confectioners. With a focus on cocoa and hazelnut spreads as well as semi-finished sweets, the company has developed over the years to achieve international recognition as a reference in the production of spreadable creams for third parties.
