What's more Italian than an espresso? Although none of the coffee beans is produced in our country, the way they are blended, roasted, ground and brewed is part of the real Italian way of life! The same goes for Delicius anchovies. Our care for the best catch of the day, for traditional salting and filleting practices are typically Italian, even though we made it elsewhere. We decided to produce close to fishing spots, shortening the time between hauling in the nets and processing. So we get the best quality. As simple as this.

The sea. Is there anything more evocative? Knowing the sea, knowing fish. Being capable of cooking and preserving it at best. This is our passion: to revive images, scents and sensations that only the sea can offer all year around.. with a simple anchovy: the Delicius anchovy.
We are Italian and our preserves properly represent the Italian style, our good way of living. The taste for simple, yet refined food: the pleasure of good family traditions that make you feel the warmth of your home even when you are sitting with the feet in the sea water.
In Italy the sea is a synonym of being together: with friends, possibly sipping a glass of wine in cheerful harmony. Merely being together with the people you love while the sun is setting, eating some good and authentic food.. in other words, something Delicius!
