A light-weight company with a small foot print
Italia Formaggi is the result of the expertise of two long-established and well-respected Italian companies: Gennari Vittorio SpA, with over 50 years experience in the selection and maturation of Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano, and Dalter Alimentari SpA, which was founded in 1978 and specialises in the packing of grated and portioned fresh cheese.
In November 2011 Dalter Alimentari SpA and Gennari Vittorio SpA, formalised the agreement to set up Italia Formaggi Ltd, with the aim of importing and distributing Italian food of the very best quality within the UK.
Italia Formaggi Ltd is a streamlined and highly efficient operation, which draws on the combined knowledge and expertise of the two founding partners who have extensive experience in the production and processing of cheese, and a combined turnover of €120 million, of which 20% is generated in the UK market.
The two companies, thanks to their shared strategic vision, wanted to be able to respond effectively and work more efficiently in a territory that has always been very receptive to Italian products. This initiative has been made possible through collaboration with leading companies in the dairy sector in Italy- all of whom have many years experience in supplying the UK market- with the aim of distributing a selection of the best Italian cheeses: Parmigiano Reggiano, Gorgonzola, Taleggio, Mascarpone, Mozzarella and Ricotta, thus becoming the benchmark for Italian cheese imports into the UK and taking full advantage of over thirty years experience of both founding partners.
The quality of our genuine 'Made in Italy' products is of essential importance to Italia Formaggi Ltd. We have control over the manufacture, packing, supply chain, and technical functions, and this is all combined with the flexibility and responsiveness of service that you only get from a small, caring and experienced team of professionals.
