Laboratorio Artigianale Tortellini is founded: a small workshop where Romana Tamburini produced and sold retail fresh handmade pasta. A few years later, Edoardo Bacchini patented the first industrial Garganelli-making machine.
In 1990, Laboratorio Tortellini SRL becomes an industrial facility, with a 1,000 sq. m. production area.
In 1995 we choose the name Surgital®, to express the two central values of the business: Italian traditions and deep-freezing, the best method to preserve fresh pasta without preservatives and additives.
Then comes compliance with HACCP guidelines, the first of numerous certifications for safety, product health, company organization and respect for the environment.
