Berchicci Importing was first established in 1960 by Mr. Berchicci and then subsequently acquired by Mr. Occhiuto in 1965. Mr. Occhiuto has been one of the pioneers in importing cheeses and specialty foods from Italy. In 1967 he was the first to import the famous Nutella in Canada.
Throughout the years, Berchicci Importing continued to expand in the field of Italian specialty foods and ultimately took pride in distributing these products throughout Canada.
In 2014, Berchicci Importing put all those years of experience into opening a new concept in Montreal’s St Leonard neighbourhood. This warehouse-concept store filled with Italian specialty foods and is open to the public where people can find many food products imported directly from Italy at wholesale prices.
Berchicci is one of Montreal’s largest Italian food importers, importing famous Italian products such as Parmigiano Reggiano, Mozzarella di Bufala, Rana Pasta, Chocolat Papa and numerous other exclusive Italian specialties. Berchicci prides itself in offering the best quality at the best price and constantly growing their product offerings to meet the needs of their clientele.
