I have been working for GiGi Importing since 2010 as the product photographer for web and print content. It is a great company to work for as it is a positive work environment where I feel valued and appreciated.

GiGi Importing only imports the best quality Italian food. A family-run business they adhere to local tradition and take great care to source products with the highest quality ingredients and taste. They have a wide selection of products and a remarkably authentic collection of foods that reflect the true heart of Italian culture.

I love the variety of Gigi Importing products! As a recipe developer and cooking instructor, it makes my job easier when I’m using delicious, wholesome foods to motivate people to get in their kitchens and prepare meals for their families. It’s also important I have access to good-quality traditional Italian foods when cooking meals that celebrate my heritage!” ~ Fina Scroppo, author of The Healthy Italian
