Tonelli Group S.p.A. studies, engineers, produces and sells complete plants for the Bakery Industry worldwide. For over 60 years in fact the Tonelli brand represents the “top” as regards mixing technologies for the bakery, thanks to the extraordinary ingenious of a R&D department constantly aimed at the most innovative solutions; to the vast mechanical and electronic know-how of an in-house production team; to the sensibility of the sales team in listening to the Customer and his needs; to the efficiency of the after-sales and spare parts services.
The human and professional contribution of about 100 people, between personnel, collaborators and agents, has brought about over 7.000 Planetary Mixers and 200 Sponge Cake Lines to more than 1000 Customers all over the world.

Our mission is to be with the Customer step by step during the productive process, from the recipe’s adjustment in our laboratory with the technologists’ support, to the definition of the right environmental variables for the production area; from the study of the product’s technical needs, to the final advice on the real production phase at the Customer’s facilities. From an idea to the shelf… and further.


The R & D side was strengthened in 2007 with the creation of a 700 sqm laboratory, available for Customers to test their usual recipes with Tonelli equipment, but also to study new ones with the support of an internal team of Food Technologists. Thanks to this important facility, Tonelli developed new systems, entering in the sector of thermal treatments by patenting an exclusive type of rotary scraped surface heat exchanger, plants for fats’ plasticization and creams’ pasteurization, as well as evolved homogenizers/cookers which have pushed the production into the catering and large retailers sector. The engeneering & production area and the development of the new products are directed by Marco Melegari, manager and partner of Tonelli Group.
