Fortunato Bruzzese brought with him to Canada a love and respect for the foods of his home country. He first immigrated from Calabria, Italy in 1963, and in 1977, he opened La Grotta Del Formaggio, a small Italian deli filled with the best ingredients Italy has to offer. The deli is still situated in the heart of Vancouver’s ‘Little Italy’ supplying Vancouverites with high-quality foods from across the Mediterranean.
LGDF also offers family-style catering and has a wholesale division.
