Josep Cudié started working as the lead baker at the Joan Trens and Riba pastry shop, a historic building known as Cal Catani in Vilafranca de Penedès. This pastry shop was very well known for its chocolate nuggets.
At the Trens Pastry shop he started working on an assortment of Chocolates, which tended to be like chocolate from Paris. One of these chocolates was the Cro-crem. This chocolate was so well liked that it was always present in the assortments that Josep Cudié made. Thanks to the popularity of this chocolate, people ended up christening it with the name of the place where they bought them: Catànies.
Josep Cudié established himself with his own resources at a small bakery where he dedicated himself to making chocolates, among which was the Cro-crem.
Josep Cudié registered the Cro-crem and Catania brand since they were an important part of his Cro-crem production line.
