For more than 130 years, Galbani has been bringing the best of Italy to the tables around the world, in more than 140 countries. Leader in the Italian cheese market in the world, Galbani offers a large range of products produced with respect to the tradition and the know-how of its founder Egidio Galbani.

The Story

Galbani was born in Valsassina, a green land characterized by lush alpine pastures, in the North of Italy. From such a generous landscape, only the best of milk could come.

Everything in Galbani refers and goes back to its founder: Egidio Galbani. Even today, he is a source of inspiration for generations of “Galbani people”: workers, managers, partners. In the middle of the 1870s, he started handling the whole cheese production cycle. In 1911 Galbani opened a new site in Melzo, next to the modern and fast-improving railway system. From that strategic position, cheeses could efficiently reach Milan and the entire Lombardy region. Inside the factory, all the latest technologies were installed, such as the first refrigerators and the steam engines.


In the second half of the XX Century, the company reached a huge and impactful distribution model: 2.700 dedicated representatives were traveling throughout Italy, bringing Galbani fresh cheeses to a wider and wider audience. Italian quality cheeses, historically too perishable to go far and to stay fresh, were now available on a large scale.

Galbani brings to the tables of its consumers a slice of genuine Italian flavour: fresh and tasty cheeses that represent not only the best Italian culinary tradition but also the so celebrated Italian attitude and lifestyle.
