Our Philosophy

At the Red Beetle, we love food, adore Italy and revel in the many stories that we pick up on our travels.

Working as a passionate and dedicated team, we have devoted our lives to searching out and locating the best and most authentic Italian food products and to bring them to your table. We never tire of travelling and tasting in our mission to provide you with the best in Italian ingredients.

Whether you want to give food as a present or simply indulge yourself, there is nothing more enjoyable than to sit around the dining table with family and friends and share some of the greatest edible pleasures in life.

We go the extra mile to provide you with only the best quality; buying food online can be a shot in the dark, but not when you shop with Red Beetle. We promise to provide you with only the best because nothing less will do.

And it doesn’t stop there. We spend much of our time travelling to and through Italy, visiting suppliers and spending quality time with them. Our research is thorough; we investigate, ask questions, check the factories and production facilities as well as hygiene and quality control. Where products are deemed organic, we check the certification.

When a product arrives on our site, you are guaranteed a distinctive and exclusive authentic Italian food that we have verified all the way from being grown to finally being packaged.

How? Look for the Gold Beetle Certified™ sign at the bottom of each description: that will tell you if we visited the supplier, what is special about them, our thoughts on their processes and procedures. If we haven't visited their premises, then it'll be a Silver Beetle Certified™ product or if we only know the people well, there will be no certification at all. Transparency is one of our core values, and we'll keep you in the loop every step of the way.  

The origin of our products is vitally important to us. We are privileged to work with some wonderful people who are dedicated, caring and love what they do.  

The end result? Some fantastic Italian food that goes on to contribute towards a better world.
