Giusto Manetti Battiloro is one of the world’s leading producers of gold leaf. Bolstered by a history spanning over 400 years, a tenacious passion for quality, and a continuous propensity to invest in the future, the company’s corporate policy is based on four main pillars:

the value of tradition, handed down by fifteen generations of the Manetti family;

love for quality, cultivated by specialised workers, an unparalleled knowledge of the product, and constant attention to customer needs;

ethical conduct, put into practice through respect for the rights of employees and collaborators, loyalty to commitments made with customers and suppliers, and support for the local territory;

investment in innovation, supported by the continuous upgrading of production processes, the development of new technologies, and the ongoing training of the human resources.


Giusto Manetti Battiloro exports its exceptional 100% made in Italy products all over the world. All of the gold and silver leaf production and packaging stages are carried out at the new headquarters, which occupies an area of 8000 square metres in the Campi Bisenzio industrial area (Florence), just a few kilometres from where the company’s extraordinary history began back in the early 1600s.

Operational since January 7, 2013, the plant was designed according to the philosophy of total quality management, in order to ensure exceptional and flexible customer service, to expand the range of custom solutions, to always guarantee top quality products, to optimise production times, and to ensure the well-being of the workers.

The new headquarters, which unites the previous Florentine production units on Via Ponte alle Mosse, Via Panciatichi and Via Petrocchi within a single building, is equipped with highly advanced machinery and production systems designed to ensure a finished product of exceptional quality, while at the same time guaranteeing maximum safety and efficiency.

The company’s extraordinary know-how, obtained through constant investments in research and development, is protected by numerous patents. The assurance of quality is also guaranteed worldwide by registered trademarks linked to the corporate identity and specific product lines: “Giusto Manetti Battiloro”, “GMB 1820 Giusto Manetti Battiloro”, “Fabbrica di oro e argento in foglia”, “Gold Chef” (edible gold), “Beauty Gold” (cosmetic gold).
