Bringing the best Mediterranean products to New Zealand families for more than 25 years

Mediterranean Foods started in a Cuba Street, Wellington fish shop and a Christchurch fresh produce wholesale business. In 1990, recognising a gap in what food & wine was available at the time, Joe & Gino Cuccurullo in Wellington and Gerald Crotty in Christchurch sought to bring the best Mediterranean products direct to New Zealand.

By 1996, we expanded our offerings by importing Mediterranean goods, starting with just one single pallet from Italy. But that was just the beginning. For more than 25 years, Mediterranean Foods has partnered with top European food artisans to bring the best Mediterranean products to New Zealand families. This venture grew rapidly, and now we import over 200 containers of goods from Europe each year, operating three retail locations, two trattorias and an online store delivering direct to your door.

Since 2017 the adopted Italian’s, the Brady family, have owned and operated the Christchurch retail and trattoria business furthering their love affair with food, wine and travel. In 2023 the Brady’s also took on the Newtown operation to finally bring together the Mediterranean Foods retail and trattoria businesses.

Our stores and trattoria walls proudly showcase our family history and Italian heritage. Mediterranean Foods Trattoria and Deli is all about creating food experiences with fresh, healthy, and flavorful tastes. We aim to encourage Kiwis to embrace the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet—Eat, drink, and be healthy together with family and friends the Mediterranean Foods way!
