Nicola started out by testing normal household methods of freezing which, although not ideal in terms of large-scale production, proved themselves highly successful with regard to the quality of the end product. The flavour and aroma were those of a freshly baked pizza- as if it had never been frozen at all.
These first positive results coincided with a market that was in continual evolution, a market in which “Made in Italy” became a worldwide guarantee of excellence. With this in mind, Nicola initiated his first major investment in 1991 when he invested in production machinery whilst still maintaining his headquarters at his little office at home. Within a few years, a combination of dedication, painstaking ingredient selection, respect for tradition and careful consideration of the modern consumer’s needs helped to lay the foundations for the emergence of Scarlinpizza, that is to say a successful company and furthermore, a company that has gone on to work within both Italian and foreign markets- developing links with various chains of leading supermarkets and delicatessens along the way.
