In common with most Italian immigrants who made their home in the UK during the early 1950s, the four Valerio brothers love for food meant they never lost sight of their culinary roots and set out to provide Italians in the UK with food from the homeland.
They opened their first delicatessen in Islington, London in the early 60’s but the brothers had a greater ambition. They wanted to make their own cheeses and meat products, so, in 1964 in the basement of the shop in Islington they began making mozzarella, ricotta and Italian sausages.
Two years later, they had been successful enough to acquire another London based cheese making company, Milkflower Ltd and by 1970 they had bought a plot of land in Manton Lane, Bedford where they built their own purpose designed factory and warehouse. This enabled them to grow the business and supply the restaurant trade and emerging pizzeria trade as well as Italian delicatessens across the UK.
With the passage of time, Valerio’s joined the Carnevale group of companies who continue to maintain their exceptionally high standards, using only the best ingredients in their products.
