A history of quality.
A point of reference for all the Italian large-scale distribution
It all began immediately after the war, when the young Umberto Castaldo began working as a shop boy in a delicatessen in the center of Naples, not far from the family home. That young apprentice grows up and acquires mastery of the trade and experience with the raw material.
Towards the end of the 1950s Umberto took over the management of the first shop, a shop of just 40 square meters, in via Cavalleggeri d’Aosta (still existing today) becoming the owner of the delicatessen. The shop was called “the source of cheeses” and with the arrival of the brothers Eugenio, Ciro and Mario in just under 10 years the delicatessens became four, all insistent in Naples in the Fuorigrotta district.
