European Deli Becomes Sole U.S. Importer for Pernigotti
East Hanover, NJ, (August 6, 2018), European Deli announces that it has been named the exclusive importer of the Italian chocolate brand, Pernigotti, for the United States.
The Pernigotti brand, since 1860, offers chocolates from the Piedmonte region of Italy known for its prized hazelnuts. The range includes gianduiotto, cremino, and nocciolato in both milk and dark chocolate varieties. The chocolate comes in bags, tins, and gift boxes. All Pernigotti chocolates are Kosher, gluten free, all natural and contain no palm oils.
