Italian passion. Food Love

Who we are

Ilif researches, select and distributes all over the world, cheeses, cold cuts, pasta, and other sought-after Italian specialties. The soul of our work is curiosity, the desire to discover the best products, how they are born and why, and who are the people who create them.

We were born in 2015 as a branch of Fontana Enzo srl, a historic company commercializing dairy ingredients and food technologies since the 1960s.

Since our company was founded, we have been on a long journey across Italy to discover the best products, how they are created, and the people who make them. And we have no plans to stop.

More than 800 products

Our extensive catalog comprises more than 800 products, cheeses, meats, pizzas, sauces and condiments, filled pasta, sweets and more, available at room temperature, fresh or frozen (including with IQF technology).

Most of our producers are BRC and IFS certified to guarantee the production process.

We also have a selection of Halal and Kosher-certified products to complete the range.
