Lazzaroni is a well-known Italian brand. Lazzaroni was the first Italian company to produce biscuits industrially, and has been marketing Lazzaroni branded biscuits and pastries since 1888.

The Lazzaroni family, led by Carlo Lazzaroni, moved from Valtellina to Saronno at the beginning of the 18th century, starting the artisanal production of Amaretti di Saronno. The business was continued by Carlo's sons Paolo and Davide. Paolo moved to Monza in the mid 19th century, starting the production of mostarda and liqueurs.
In the following years, the company enjoyed great success, making 350 different types of biscuits and exporting its products world-wide
