Banda Biscotti is an Italian prison economy project.
We chose to produce biscuits within the multifaceted penitentiary environment because we believe that a different prison is possible.
Every day, stories of people are shut in behind bars, just waiting to be listened: Banda Biscotti feds on these stories... and kneads them with organic and carefully selected ingredients.
NUMBERS SPEAK FOR US:
- founded in 2007
- more than 40 detainees involved since the beginning of the activities
- a range of over 20 products
- production capacity of 250kg of biscuits per day
Our Mission: to offer qualified job opportunities to people experiencing imprisonment and willing to build a different future for themselves, learning a new profession.
Our Vision: A proactive prison; one that creates value and is at the centre of an effective system of social reintegration.
