Originally a food wholesaler importing products from Italy, The Mediterranean Food Co. was established on the Tuam Street site in 2001, quickly becoming one of Christchurch’s most iconic destinations. For over 20 years we have worked with highly regarded food artisans from all over Europe to bring the most loved Mediterranean products directly on your table.

Family owned and operated, here at The Mediterranean Food Co. we aim to:

  • Source and directly import a unique product mix of Mediterranean inspired ingredients, focusing on quality and convenience.
  • Share our passion for food, wine and Mediterranean culture with dedicated customer service.
  • Offer a superior shopping experience in a European inspired and friendly environment.
  • Serve the most authentic Italian Pizza in the South Island.
