International Gourmet Foods, Inc. (IGF) was founded by Maurizio Di Benigno in 1987. A life-long passion for quality products, fine tasting foods, and a wealth of experience in the food service industry, inspired the principles on which Maurizio has built this company. His commitment to the needs and desires of his clients and his determination to source products of quality and value built the reputation of IGF as one of the premier gourmet food import and distribution companies in the industry. The initial product list of four items: sundried tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, saffron and pasta, was modest, particularly in comparison to the current day list which now boasts more than 5000 products, from all around the world. In expanding our product list, we seek out new and innovative goods, which will excite and inspire our customers.
From its original inception, the mission of IGF has been simple; keep superior customer service at the heart of our business. The initial concept was to import a small number of high quality items in large quantities. This facilitated competitive prices and enabled us to offer a low delivery minimum – both cornerstones of good customer service.
Who we are today
Quality, Service and Value are the hallmarks of International Gourmet Foods, Inc. (IGF). From its modest beginning, IGF was and still is a family owned and operated business that was founded on solid values and principles that we continue to grow and develop. We keep our core mission to seek out innovative, superior quality products from around the world and deliver these to our customers, quickly, easily and at the right price. Our focus and commitment to these principles is inevitable.
