Origin, Vision, Spirit
The owner of Maccanti was originally a businessman. He often took business trips all over the world.
An Italian business partner who had worked with him for more than 10 years always took him to a specific gelato shop after work. The owner of Maccanti loved the gelato at the shop very much because of its creamy and smooth texture.
Years later, the boss finally couldn't help asking his Italian friend: Why do you bring me to this gelato shop that often?
The friend replied: Because the shop owner is my father-in-law, Serafino Panic!
Since the Italian master, Serafino Panic, was a child, he had been under the guidance of his father Bruno on how to use natural ingredients to make fine gelato. It was not until 1984 that he decided to start his own business.
Due to the strong friendship between the owner of Maccanti and his Italian business partner, the Italian master, Serafino Panic, agreed to teach his secret recipe to the owner of Maccanti so that he can bring the authentic gelato taste back to Taiwan to share with everyone.
We hope to bring back the authentic Italian Gelato flavor to Taiwan and become the top brand of Italian gelato in Taiwan.
