Discover a fine food adventure

The Good Deli Company is a part of Donatantonio. A leading importer and distributor of international fine foods in the U.K. Awarded a Royal Warrant in 2001, its dedication to sourcing premium ingredients has ensured its continuing success as an essential food partner to restaurants, hotels, pubs, bars and contract caterers for over 100 years.

Our food adventure started as far back as 1902 when Luigi Donatantonio arrived in London and started importing the finest quality ingredients from Italy.

Following substantial growth, Donatantonio expanded its group business to form the Good Deli Company on January 15th 2015. With a strong heritage in manufacturing and retail, The Good Deli Company was created specifically for the foodservice sector to provide premium, flavour-enhancing ingredients.

Good Deli Company resides in Hertfordshire, in our EFSIS accredited storage and distribution centre that imports from over 10 countries worldwide and encompasses a range of over 200 specially selected premium products.
