One company, two brands, one world of discovery

A small piece of chocolate history

Aquilino Maestrani, the founding father of Maestrani, is one of the pioneers in the manufacturing of Swiss chocolate. In 1852, he wrote a piece of Swiss chocolate history by founding the Maestrani company.

Fifty years later, Maestrani created the recipe for Minor. In 1936, Minor was officially registered in the Swiss register of trademarks.

Today, the Maestrani family company is based in Flawil/St. Gallen where a team of chocolate specialists work every day with dedication and commitment in a modern production facility.
