“At the end of the year there comes a time when, usually, we reflect on what we have faced, the goals we have achieved, the experiences that have enriched us, the moments of joy, but also those of discouragement. Christmas brings back memories of earlier times and our own experiences, ready to be combined with plans for the upcoming year”.
With these words that paint the human soul with almost Pascoli-like candor and delicacy, Sonia Pilla presents the 2022 theme collection “The Tradition of the Magical Christmas”. Everything revolves around the concept of LOVE and giving without expecting anything in return.
Since the late nineties, Loison products have been recognized for their superior quality, not only based on their success in Italian and foreign markets, but also on numerous awards received from some of the most illustrious European and Italian organizations in the food and wine industry. Loison, which was founded in Motta di Costabissara, a tiny town in the province of Vicenza, has recently earned the national “Marchio storico di interesse nazionale” as well as the “Save The Brand 2022” award.
Dario Loison has been in charge of the firm since 1992, constantly keeping its handcrafted character in mind while expanding into the worldwide market. His son Edoardo, the 4th Loison generation, is now supporting him in his activities.
Dario Loison describes himself using two simple words: genius and unpredictability. His mind is constantly working and searching to push beyond boundaries. For Dario, tradition and innovation do not walk side by side, rather they are closely connected.
While he offers traditional Panettone in a wide range of flavors (the newest addition is the Licorice and Saffron Panettone Cake), he also changes it up and, with the help of his chef friends, brings it to our table throughout the year so it becomes a basic ingredient for first courses, premium meats and refined fish. That’s why Dario was able to make the Loison name renowned worldwide, whilst clearing the panettone cake from its traditional holiday role.
Simple origins, genuine products, and traditional desserts: these are the guiding principles behind the Loison family’s philosophy, 4 generations of pastry chefs started in 1938 with grandfather Tranquillo, the first to embrace the craft of bread making and the first to pass it on to dad Alessando. Together, they share the oven activity in a family firm, inaugurating a new lab in 1969.
