We sell only products that are produced responsibly and sustainably. This is how we create enjoyment - at the table or on the go. Nature is at the heart of our products. The raw materials come from fertile volcanic soil, the sun-drenched fields of Sicily and from regions near the mineral-rich sea. We source our products only from controlled farms. Organic, partly vegan, natural and always with an eye on health and your well-being.
Even as a child, Giovanni Di Bennardo longed for the distance. As the son of an immigrant, he sought his roots in Sicily at an early age. He was fascinated by the cuisine and the unique talent of the islanders: to enjoy and share good things with one another. ‘How can I pack up Italy and bring it to Switzerland?’ he asked himself. It’s the birth of an idea.
It all started with a few imported oil bottles. Founded as a start-up in Zurich in 2002, a basement room in District 4 was transformed into a warehouse and a large creative office. The DI BENNARDO brand was born, and within a few years the small company developed into a national food retail company.
Today, Di Bennardo AG distributes various of its own brand products. They are natural, organic foods of the highest quality and transparent origin. The customer portfolio includes supermarkets, upscale department stores, selected specialist shops and various catering and distribution partners.
Giovanni Di Bennardo is still exploring the culinary roots of his ancestors. He brings home stories from his travels in the form of the finest food. For all gourmets who are enchanted by Italian cuisine and just like Di Bennardo: ‘voglio il meglio’ – simply wanting the best.
