Fondazione Social Venture Giordano Dell’Amore


Biomadre S.r.l. is a company that has been active since 2015 in the artisan bakery sector, through a laboratory – called Le Golose Imperfezioni – that is located in the heart of Como. In 2019, it launched Graniburger S.r.l., an innovative start-up in the catering sector, which is dedicated to the sale of plant-based burgers produced by BioMadre using traditional processes and using only sustainable and organic raw materials, including 15 different types of ancient grain flours, and which employs disadvantaged people, in particular ex-prisoners, along its supply chain.

Today, BioMadre has formalized its entry into the shareholding structure of Fondazione Social Venture Giordano Dell’Amore – the strategic and operational Foundation of Fondazione Cariplo in the impact investing field – which has invested €100,000 in equity in the start-up.


BioMadre regularly collaborates with the Concerto Consortium, a long-standing reality in the Como social fabric whose goal is to respond to the care, work, housing, and inclusion needs of vulnerable people. In the last 5 years, through The 2nd Chance project, 13 people have found jobs following 3-6 month courses aimed at increasing their baking skills and programs aimed at permanent recruitment. BioMadre also participates in the Pane Sospeso project, donating wholemeal sourdough bread to the neediest families in the Como community and inviting its customers to support the initiative. In addition, we have set ourselves specific impact objectives in the medium term: by 2025 we aim to give employment within our team to 12 vulnerable people and to sponsor 15 professional apprenticeships for ex-prisoners.
