Enjoying a bottle of wine in a Tuscan vineyard in the early 90’s became the inspiration of what is now the premier suppliers of imported Italian food in the UK. No one was importing produce this good in the UK, so we began here in London in 1996.
Importing fresh food from Italy to London is our speciality. Machiavelli is a well established, vibrant and innovative company, specialising in importing simply the very best Italian food, direct from Italy. Our dedication lies in quality of the food, the service and our passion in the products themselves. We are proud to distribute Italian Food, produce and ingredients to the top restaurants, delis, stores and hotels in London and nation-wide. Some very famous restaurants are running on our Italian imported food.
We believe the best food is the freshest and it is this philosophy that helps drive our choice of products, arriving twice a week from Italy by refrigerated transport. Specialist artisan foods include fresh handmade pastas from Tuscany, cheeses produced with traditional family recipes from Piedmont, alongside first-pressed olive oils by one of the most prestigious producers in Sicily.
The choice of products available is endless – balsamic vinegars, prosciuttos and salamis as well as mouth-watering antipasti and olives grown in the sun drenched groves of the Mediterranean. Italian Food imported and supplied at its very best.
Many of our products are sourced from the Slow Food Movement and are D.O.P. / I.G.P. (Protected Denomination of Origin / Protected Geographical Origin). D.O.P. ensures that the raw ingredients are sourced locally as well as indicating place of origin, whereas I.G.P. ensures that all production processes conform to specific local traditions.
