Adriatic has been our client for over 10 years and we have been blown away at how their range has grown. We caught up with Roberto Reffo, the General Manager from Adriatic to get the inside scoop: –

  • How has business been over the past couple of years?

In recent years, our business has faced formidable challenges amidst a turbulent landscape, including the impact of COVID-19, conflicts like the war in Ukraine, and prevailing economic difficulties in Europe as well as increasing costs. Despite these hurdles, our company has demonstrated resilience, maintaining its strength in the market. Remarkably, we have observed an ongoing demand from consumers for higher quality goods, indicating a discerning taste and a desire for excellence.

  • How has your product range grown?

We have observed a notable shift in consumer behaviour, with an increasing demand for superior quality products as consumers become more discerning and proficient. A prominent trend has emerged where individuals are choosing to cater from home, aiming to showcase their culinary skills to impress guests. Consequently, consumers are investing in top-notch domestic culinary equipment and seeking food and beverage products that align with this elevated standard. Italian products, renowned both globally and locally, have particularly gained the respect and preference of consumers. There has been a steady rise in the purchase of these products, as consumers increasingly recognise and value the exceptional quality.

  • What has been your main aim for South Africans with Adriatic? 

The main aim for us bringing Italian imported products to South Africa is to cater to the demand and desires of consumers and businesses who appreciate and seek high-quality Italian food & beverage goods as well as machinery and culinary equipment. By introducing Italian imported products, Adriatic offers an authentic taste of Italy, known for its rich culinary heritage, craftsmanship, and style.

Italian products are renowned for their superior quality, whether it’s food and beverages, culinary equipment, or luxury goods. We want to provide South African consumers with access to authentic Italian products that are made with exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail. By importing these goods, we offer South Africans a diverse selection of items they might not find locally. By offering these imported products, we hope to expand the options available to South African consumers. This allows them to explore new tastes and experiences.

 Importing Italian products can also have positive economic effects. It can create opportunities for partnerships and collaborations between Italian and South African businesses. Additionally, by introducing sought-after Italian products to the market, we can stimulate consumer demand, leading to increased sales and potential growth for the local retail sector.

  • Where do your products end up? 

Our primary focus lies in serving the trade industry, including restaurants, hotels, as well as both independent and major retailers like Pick n Pay, Spar, and Makro. We also sell our products online, to the public from our warehouses in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban and we deliver all over the country.
