From its origins as a small family business begun over a century ago, LUPA Foods has grown into a game changing UK food supplier with a truly global reach.
Back in the early 1890’s Luigi Donatantonio, the founder of our food network, left Italy and arrived on English shores. Missing the culinary delights of his home country, he asked friends back home to send him his beloved foods over from Italy to England. When his fellow Italians in the UK found out, he started a business to sell these imported goods to a whole new market.
The company was run as a successful family business for over a century, attracting significant investment when management took over in late 2007. In 2018, Donatantonio merged with Compleat Food Network and became LUPA Foods, with the intent on being a market leader within the sector. Despite a truly global focus, LUPA Foods still retains a sense of its roots with a peerless range of Italian food products on offer.
