A bit about us

Authentic Italian products and ingredients, sourced, imported and delivered to you. 

What we do

For 20 years Bontà Italia has been at the forefront of supplying great Italian ingredients to the UK’s food industry. We import, source, develop and sell products that help our customers create great food. Our name literally means “the goodness of Italy,” and that’s what we sell.  

Founded in 2003 by food industry expert Marco Silvagni and celebrity chef Gino D’Acampo, today we supply every sector of the UK food industry. Britain’s food service businesses trust us to provide the best Italian ingredients and products, backed up by fast, reliable delivery and exceptional service.

Our range covers every Italian ingredient your business needs, from stone-ground polenta to our own recipe pesto. Every  product is tried and tested by us, so you can be sure you’re getting the best quality, every time. 

Innovation has been a watchword at Bontà since we started. Our own ranges are always growing and improving, and we’re specialists at developing bespoke products for a customer’s specific need. 

We’ve developed healthy, cost-effective pasta sauces for the education sector, produced a range of tasty, re-heatable nutritious meals for healthcare customers and created bespoke packaging of our ingredients for recipe box companies.

If you need it, we’ll find it. And if we can’t find it, we’ll make it.

Sectors we work with

How we do it

We’ve spent two decades building relationships with our suppliers in Italy, giving us access to the best quality – quality that remains consistently high, year after year. We visit them regularly to carry out factory visits, see produce being grown and harvested, and try new products. Our relationship with our suppliers is crucial to getting the best products, and we trust them to deliver the goods. 

We’re experts at sourcing and creating specialist products, using our wide network of Italian suppliers to find the right ingredients, and our in-house development facilities to create the perfect recipe. 

We’ve been partners with our logistics company for many years. They manage our warehousing and transport, and they know our business and customers’ needs inside out. We have around 5000 pallets stored so we’re always fully stocked, and our fast, reliable delivery service means you don’t have to wait for your order.
