About the Company

The Delicious Italian Food now re-born to the Netherlands was born in July 2012, under the umbrella of the Auroville Foundation, a place of volunteering (in India).

The company was born to supply mainly the residents of the village where working is very tiring because of the scorching heat and there is no time and… sufficient strength to prepare meals for themselves at home.

The Delicious Italian Food was initially set up for a variety of Italian sauces based on tomatoes,  legumes, cooked vegetables, some particular jam for energetic purposes as well as for the palate. All of them in a jar. Subsequently, the company DIF enlarged the range of its products, expanded itself and sales went also online.
In 2017, another season occurs with very high temperatures and humidity, unthinkable in Europe so, in 2018 Stefano and Stefania decide to return to Europe closing Indian DIF to open DIF at North Europe. After a long analysis, they came to go to Holland in another adventure.
We buy organically grown ingredients as much as we can. We are vegetarians.

This website is just like a brief visit card. We are doing a blog where we’ll give more details about our story, our recipes and the spirit behind them.

The Partners Founder

Stefano


Twenty-five-years as seller-agent, companies owner, a manager in marketing and sales, in the previous decade Stefano started as a volunteer as a cook at religious groups. After that, he went to live in India as volunteer in 2010. On September 2012, Stefano founded the ‘Delicious Italian Food” in India under the umbrella of Auroville Indian Foundation for local needs and to spread Italian culture.

It was really a challenge to face the indian climate in a kitchen! Indian summer is generally starting on may to stop in june but quite often start earlier on april, and go to the end later on late july. It works on really high temperature with an unthinkable humidity! …and in the winter, the average degrees are 28 in the day and 19 in the night.

On January 2018, we decided to close the company because of last incredible summer. We decided to stop our life in India and we headed back to Europe to go to live in the Netherlands, as we fell in love after a long trip in it .
