Piccola Cucina

Almond-based bakery products
Winnipeg, Manitoba

Piccola Cucina is a 100% certified woman owned business based in Winnipeg, MB founded by mother and daughter. We have been in business for over 10 years and are the premiere manufacturers of almond based, healthy indulgent creations. Our line includes macaroons & pie shells made with the goodness of almonds as the first ingredient.

We have dedicated our facility as gluten free as well as Kosher & HACCP certified. All of our products are made with almonds first, that are sourced from a 3rd generation family farm in the San Joaquin Valley in California, a BRC certified almond farm. True to Italian tradition, high end premium products require the absolute best ingredients, which is why we have sourced the best almond flour to make our delicious macaroons. When using so few ingredients, the quality of the inputs is just as important as the care and attention taken when crafting the finished product. Because we use only premium and few ingredients, our macaroons are inherently free from many of the top allergens except for tree nuts…making us a leader in the healthy indulgent space.

Our Mission: We are a food manufacturing company that puts honesty and integrity first and foremost in everything we do. We believe that products can be made simply, with minimal processing and without the addition of extra fillers ensuring the customer receives a product that they can feel good about eating and feeding to their families. We approach our business holistically so that our impact on people & planet is sustainable. Piccola Cucina manages sustainability efforts by minimizing byproducts, achieving zero food waste, recycling processing and packaging materials, and conserving energy and water.

We are committed to Diversity and Inclusion throughout our supply chain. Whenever possible we source from vendors and suppliers that are committed to diversity in the workplace with a commitment to inclusiveness. We align with organizations that understand the importance of committing to diversity and inclusion and we ensure that our team is made up of people from all walks of life. It is our belief that our diversity is our strength and competitive advantage.
