Bricelets de Vevey was the name of the Swiss company acquired by the first producer in Italy in the 1950s.What nationality is Bussy?
Bussy is an Italian company, established in the 1950s in Milan, in the north of Italy where it is still based.
No. Bussy is a brand that was originally Swiss, taken over in 1967 by Mr. Luigi Vandone, father of the current owner.
Before buying the Bussy company, Mr Luigi Vandone had more than twenty years of experience with artisan confectionery.
Buying a company that produced wafers, he created the first wafer in semi-finished form in a rolled shape.
Bussy then became known for their rolled wafers (or "Cannoli" in Italian).
Simple, with everything that is creamy... ice cream, custard, cream, semifreddo, even ganache!
It is hard to say, more than 150, but every month a new wafer is invented.
No, it is a low moisture, low fat product, so it does not need preservatives.
Certainly and it has been for many years. Our raw material suppliers are carefully selected and monitored by our QM team.
The quality of the wafer comes from the percentage of sugar content that makes the product hygroscopic.
Therefore, before filling the Bussy rolled wafers with gelato or semifreddo, we recommend chilling them for at least 15 minutes.
We suggest watching the Video Tutorial on preparing the rolled wafers in the video section of this site.
Bussy's Kikeras are small sugar wafer bowls, they have a particular rounded shape.
For proper use, use a pleated cup.
The ideal temperature for storing Bussy products is between 10° and 25° C. (50° - 77° F)
Each product has an individual expiration date, but because they are a low moisture content product, they keep for a long time.
If properly stored in their original packaging, without being directly exposed to air, Bussy products can be used until the "best before" date shown on the package.
