Hand-picked

Made in Italy Products

Hand-picked Selections

Our model promotes the sustainable consumption of Italian products with respect to both consumers and producers. Our selected Food Italy® products encourage a Mediterranean Diet, part of UNESCO’s intangible heritage.

We have optimized our supply chains, making them as short as possible, and therefore, we offer a valuable service to producers and to the territories where they live (various Italian Regions). We encourage active collaboration between agricultural producers, processors, and consumers, enabling dialogue and inspiring curiosity and cooperation.

The Founder of Food Italy®

Our large market of selected and certified Food Italy® products

Angelo Freni

CEO & Founder

Our story begins in the heart of Italy. Everything begins with the family who inspired in Freni an ability to render quality into a human resource. This early exposure to excellence lead him to his own drive for a cause and for a mission. His story parallels central elements of Made in Italy: the nuclear family, dedication to work, precise decision-making, affable collaborations, detailed attention to quality, humility in service, and food products that surprise, inspire community, and travel across the globe.

Angelo Freni unites his great expertise of the agri-food sector with his almost 30 years of practical knowledge in certification services. Throughout his celebrated career he has built and consolidated important brands such as KHC (Know How Certification), CERTIFICATION, UNIQUALITY and Food Italy.

An enlightening meeting between the UNIQUALITY President and CODACONS, in 2014, pushed him to consider a new commitment—protecting Consumers—through the defense of true Italian products. The Food Italy © certification project was imagined as an entity certifying Italian excellence, with a focus on small to medium-sized producers who are not valued by large chains. Subsequently, in 2017, Freni launched Food Italy® International, with the aim of bringing to global Consumers, above all Italians living abroad, the best of real products grown or made in Italy.
