Our Story

Bontà Italia was established in 2003 by friends Gino D’Acampo & Marco Silvagni. Over the last decade the company has quickly become a symbol of authentic, top-quality Italian ingredients. Gino, a Neapolitan-born master of Italian cooking and holder of six Guinness World Records (most of which involve cooking), and Marco, a Scottish-born globetrotter and expert food critic, have built what is now the leading importer and distributor of fine Italian foods to the United Kingdom, supplying numerous sectors with ambient, chilled and frozen ingredients. Gino & Marco are very much involved in the day to day running of the business, their expertise, extensive food knowledge and friendship resonates throughout the company making it both a professional and fun environment to work in.

 

Bontà Italia has dedicated teams that respond with efficiency and ease to all customer needs, offering assistance, support and knowledge of the latest food trends. With offices in the U.K. and Italy, the company has its finger on the pulse of the changing tastes of British consumers as well as the goings-on of Italy’s best farms and food producers.

 

We are constantly increasing our product range and are always looking for innovative ingredients and packaging in order to provide our customers with the ideal solution for their business.
