New eye catching
design for our jams

Tuesday 1st August, 2017

Our Conserve range has undergone a fruity redesign! Our Italian Fig and Peach Conserves now feature coloured stripes on the front and back of the jars, mirroring the colours of the fruits and the jam inside.

Our jams are made with sun-ripened fruit grown and picked in the Campania and Emilia Romagna regions of Italy. They have lovely big fruit pieces, contain only natural ingredients and use less sugar per 100g than other competitor jams on the supermarket shelf.

Keep an eye out for the new packaging and for our new Cherry Jam coming out very soon!

Launch of our Focaccia Romana

Thursday 1st June, 2017

We are very excited to announce a new addition to the Crosta & Mollica range!

Our extra virgin olive oil and rosemary Focaccia Romana is a traditional hand-stretched flatbread eaten in Italy as an accompaniment to a meal.

But the possibilities of this soft, bubbly bread are endless! Why not try adding thin slices of prosciutto on top after warming for the perfect Italian lunch?

Crosta & Mollica’s Focaccia Romana is now available in Waitrose stores.

Introducing the new range of breads

Sunday 25th September, 2016

On the rise – Crosta & Mollica brings a taste of Italy to the table with new range of breads.

Crosta & Mollica today announces the addition of two new breads to its popular range of authentic Italian breads and savoury biscuits. Alongside the already popular Farina Pugliese, Crosta & Mollica adds Farina Wholemeal and Farina Seeded varieties, offering British consumers a chance to enjoy tasty, premium Italian bread on a daily basis.

Enjoyed by the likes of Symmetry Breakfast’s Michael Zee, Crosta & Mollica’s range of traditional Italian breads make the perfect foundation of a hearty Italian breakfast. Made with high quality Farina flour, each loaf has a thick crust and rich crumb, making them perfect for a light bruschetta, an ideal base for an Italian brunch or delicious simply toasted and topped with good quality butter.

A traditional Southern Italian bread, Farina Pugliese has a chewy texture and rich golden appearance. Toasted and topped with tomatoes and garlic it produces the ultimate Italian bruschetta, and is best enjoyed al fresco with friends. Farina Wholemeal offers consumers a high fibre choice, and is a popular breakfast bread in Italy, especially when paired with a sweet peach jam or marmalade. An ideal accompaniment to a salad or light dinner, or topped with smashed avocado and Italian olive oil for brunch, Crosta & Mollica’s Farina Seeded loaf is packed with tasty seeds, adding an extra crunch when toasted.

Available from £1.99

Crosta & Mollica founder James Orr comments: “With these new additions to our range we’re pleased to bring a real mix of traditional Italian breads to the UK dining table. Farina flour produces delicious, rich breads that pair brilliantly with salads, cheese or even just butter, and these three loaves offer a great taste of everyday luxury.”

About Crosta & Mollica

Monday 30th November, 2015

Our journey began when our founder James was in Italy, working with farmers to source the best fresh produce for supermarkets back home. The farming families would often serve up delicious local specialities to the farm workers and guests at lunchtime. Meals were eaten all together and were a time to share good food and company.

The wonderful breads became a mealtime favourite for James and soon he was seeking out local mills and bakeries so that he could bring their delicious produce back to the UK.

Translated from the Italian for ‘crust & crumb,’ Crosta & Mollica was founded with a desire to make great Italian food that brings friends and family all together. Years later, we are still dedicated to helping you discover the finest bakery products and regional specialities that Italy has to offer.
