Founded in 2000 in Montreal by olive oil sommelier Michel Favuzzi, Favuzzi’s initial goal was to bring his family’s passion for producing olive oil in Puglia, Italy, to Canada. As Favuzzi’s olive oils grew in popularity, so did the demand for a broader range of authentic Italian foods. The company soon grew to offer balsamic vinegars, artisan pastas, tomato sauces, canned tomatoes, spices and seasonings, flours, espresso, spreads and more. Favuzzi’s mission is to find the best artisans in Italy and share their craft with our market, enhancing the quality and flavour of the specialty food products available. Now with three warehouses in Montreal, Toronto and Calgary and distribution to 1200 retailers across Canada—from major supermarkets, to speciality food stores and independent retailers—Favuzzi has been ranked one of Canada’s 500 fastest-growing companies five times.
