Happy 40th anniversary to Atalanta’s DeMedici Imports! The brand celebrates four decades as an importer and distributor of specialty foods. From its small, 1979 beginnings in Sugarloaf, NY, it has grown to be a leader in taste education for the specialty food industry.
“Looking to the future, our ongoing success depends on respecting traditional, artisan methods, but also embracing innovative techniques and products that combine both the traditional and modern approach to the highest quality specialty products," said Tom Gellert, President of Atalanta Corporation.
According to the company’s press release, DeMedici was purchased by the Gellert Global Group in 2007, expanding its channels to a wider audience for its specialty products. DeMedici officially became a division of Atalanta in 2015. Through growth and change, DeMedici has remained committed to its core mission.
With Badia a Coltibuono Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil, DeMedici was the first company to import Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil to the U.S. retail market. The company continued to expand its collection of notable brands of oils, balsamic vinegars, wine and fruit vinegars, pasta, sea salts, and more from Italy, Greece, Spain, and France.
DeMedici’s Executive Vice President, Steve Kaufman, contributes the success of the company to strong brand partnerships and Atalanta’s committed support.
“Two things make DeMedici unique,” said Kaufman. “First, we have a strong foundation of well known brands that were built on a philosophy of offering only the best of the best quality from the greater Mediterranean region—not solely one country. Second, we have the commitment from Atalanta to live up to the original philosophy started 40 years ago.”
Presently, DeMedici’s team of experts travel the Mediterranean to explore trends and discover the very best for the U.S. markets.
In June, DeMedici will be at the Summer Fancy Food Show in booth #2360 to celebrate its 40 years of growth and success with the team.
