Cunzàto is an idea of 4 Sicilian young entrepreneurs who, pushed by the love for their own family company devoted to the cultivation of organic products from generations, are looking at the new internationalization business ventures for the promotion of their land. For that reason they have selected the excellences of the island to promote them abroad.
The project was born in 2012 when we con-found Sam Spina Importing Co., a wholesale food and wine distributor of imported Sicilian products based in Birmingham, Alabama. The Sam Spina Importing's success is what led us to increase the business with cunzato.com and its products.
Cunzàto is an e-commerce web site for the nostalgic of the old flavour, it is a sensory experience box full of scents, colours and authentic tastes of our land. It combines the tradition of old Sicilian products and raw materials with the innovation of vibrant brands looking at the global market.
All the products available in Cunzàto.com are accurately selected according to the corporate philosophy: natural processing linked to the Sicilian traditions and culinary art; high quality raw materials coming just from our land.
Our intent is to bring the old traditional recipes of our region and the history of Sicilian food and wine to your homes, promoting the mediterranean diet with its seasonal and healthy products.
