Orchard Ovens by Valoriani Limited, trading as Valoriani UK, is co-owned by the Valoriani family of Reggello, Florence and the Manciocchi family in Lancashire. Key decisions are made by Massimo Valoriani and his daughter, Viola, in Tuscany and by Andrew Manciocchi and his son, Dino, in England. Both Viola and Dino are in their 20s and are ready to drive the family businesses forward in the future.
Viola grew up in and around her family’s’ business, where a team of around 25 people, many from the village of Reggello, now work. Dino’s interaction with wood fired ovens started when he was 8, when his father, Andrew, first introduced wood fired ovens to the UK with his business Orchard Ovens. Following a period of time teamed up with Jamie Oliver, Andrew and Dino reverted back to trading as Orchard Ovens.
In 2014, Massimo and Andrew co-founded Orchard Ovens by Valoriani Limited as testament to the commitment to family values and longevity through quality and integrity. The next generation, namely Viola and Dino, became the Directors of the new Limited Company. The combined expertise that the Manciocchis’ and Valorianis’ can offer when it comes to wood fired ovens and cooking is unsurpassed.
The same experienced sales team and artisan installation team that installed ovens for many professional and residential clients with more high profile installations, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Harrods, Jamie Oliver, The River Café and thousands more, continue to offer pre sales advice and consultation across the UK as they have done since they were pioneers of the introduction of wood fired ovens to the UK in 2002.
They are proud to have thousands of Valoriani oven installations across the UK and their artisan installation team regularly attends product training and installation seminars at the factory in Reggello to keep abreast of new product developments and installation techniques and to absorb the 125 plus years of expertise.
