Buitoni (Italian pronunciation: [bwiˈtoːni]) is an Italian food company based in Sansepolcro. It was founded in 1827. They are known for their factory-produced products of pasta and sauces.[1]

In 1985, the Buitoni family sold the company to Carlo De Benedetti; in 1988, it was acquired by Nestlé.[2][3] In 2017, Nestlé began a brand reorganization and licensed a variety of Buitoni frozen ready meals in Italy to Frosta AG of Bremerhaven, Germany.[4]
