In June, we celebrate a very special month of the year – Italian Heritage Month. A month-long celebration of ‘italianità’, we acknowledge what it means to be Italian and more importantly, the contributions of Italians across Canada to the building of this magnificent country. With a rich culinary tradition behind them, Italians love sharing great food, spending time with family and friends and finding beauty in every moment of life – what does the Italian culture represent to you and how will you be taking part?

Baci® Perugina® is of course thrilled to be participating in this delightful event with all our fellow Italians, Italian-Canadians, and anyone who is simply Italian in spirit. We believe there is an Italian in all of us! Many moments of friendship and love have been celebrated with Baci® and we are proud to be part of the stories of numerous lovers, friends, mothers, fathers and children over the generations who have found a way to express their feelings with Baci® and its legendary love notes. The iconic Baci® Perugina®, founded in 1922, is the embodiment of what Italy represents – quality and tradition, and sharing beautiful moments together with the people you love.
