Calumets bakery has made a name for itself in Italy by catering to the most popular of the country’s bakeries, but is it actually a bakery mafia?
It’s a fair question, given the current political climate and the fact that both sides in the current bakery war have their own bakeries and other bakery companies in the capital.
While the owners of the three Calumetts bakeries (Calumet, Montauban, and L’Auberge) have been in business for years, the Bakery Mob has emerged in recent years as one of the most powerful factions within the bakery business, and is believed to be responsible for a considerable portion of the €1.2 billion in turnover made in Italy last year.
Bakers who sell to the mob include the likes of Fabio Gazzarini, Roberto Valli, and Paolo De Pasquale.
The bakery mob is known for its ability to intimidate, blackmail, and force businesses to close their doors, but there’s little evidence that this type of activity has ever been attempted in the history of Italy, although it’s worth pointing out that in 2011, the government declared a new ‘bakery mafia’ that was comprised of both ‘lawyers’ and ‘mobsters’, a move that came as a shock to many Italians.
So, if you’re looking for a bakery that’s been targeted by the mafia, look no further than Calumette Bakery.
The company was established in 1998 by Francesco Calumari, who had previously worked for the Bologna Breadshop and was known for his strong support for the local food market.
Since then, Calumettes bakery has become one of Italy’s best-known and most well-loved.
In 2011, it won the Best Bakery in Italy’s Golden Jubilee Year for the third year in a row.
However, it wasn’t long before the Baker Mob found its way into the bakery.
During the 2011 Golden Jubilee, a mob of 50 to 70 attend a bakery conference at La Salle and a group of armed bakers attacked a Calumette bakery in L’Italia, killing five people, including one of Calumetta’s owners.
They also robbed the bakery of €300,000, which led to the closure of the company.
As a result of the incident, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi declared the Golden Jubilees year-end anniversary celebration a day earlier than usual.
With the new mafia, Calums bakery has seen its share of troubles.
In 2013, Calamities bakery was the target of a large-scale mob attack in Milan, where one of its attendants was stabbed to death.
On the same day, the mob attacked a L’Itale bakery, and was also responsible for the robbery of the shop in 2012.
Last year, a gang of 80 to 100 attends a Bakers Guild meeting at the Sardo barrels in Loliet in order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of Calamitas bakery.
In April 2016, the bakery was targeted by a gang with 30 to 40 attenders in Turin. There was little to no damage to Calumett but the bakery suffered a loss of about €200,000 in turnover due to the incident.
According to Italian media, the current crop of mafia members in Italy are largely from the small town of Lino di Verona near Rome.
It’s possible that this group will eventually turn on the bakeries that they have been targeting, but it seems unlikely that they will make any real headway against the current mafia.
It’s also worth noting that the Calumettinga family has had its own baking business in Italy for years.
The Bakes dei Schenci is a bakery chain that has been in operation for more than 40 years, and it’s the third oldest bakeries in Italy.
Despite this, Baks dei has recently been hit by several high-profile incidents, including a similar-sized mob attack on a Baked Goods store in Milan that left four people injured.
This time, however, the mob attended the Baked Goods meeting in Turin and began to threaten the bakery with the use of weapons and explosives.
Italian police reported that a member of the mob used a hammer and a gun to
