The retail Fishmonger Business ‘Mariarosa’ was founded in 1968 by the newly married Mr. and Mrs. Schiaretti and its head office was in Piazzale San Bartolomeo, which is in the historic town centre of Parma.
Between 1975 and 1998 the family concentrated mainly on the Import and Export of seafood products, which enabled them to create a comprehensive network of contacts as well as gain a large amount of experience and skills to enhance their business.
The parents passed their love of seafood to their children and in 1998 the Schiaretti brothers, Marco and Luca, founded Ittigel, to market high quality seafood products such as squid, frozen at sea, then imported from Boston, California and South Africa. In 2001 the wholesale business was closed to make way for the Seafood Brokers.
The experience gained, coupled with the continued development and growth of Ittigel made it possible for Marco and Luca to open a new office in Colorno, which is 10 kilometers north of Parma (in 2005). At present, Ittigel holds the exclusive representation rights in Italy for over 15 companies worldwide.
Having established a flourishing business in the seafood product industry for several years, since 2001 Ittigel has been an agency that helps the companies it represents to grow by providing them with high quality products and services. This is reflected in their professionalism, availability, flexibility and reliability. This is also supported by their constant search for first class products.
Mutual honesty, integrity and respect are core values at Ittigel, which makes a partnership highly attractive.
Ittigel Seafood Brokers pay particular attention when advising its clients on the best possible products
to buy and supporting the companies they represent towards constant, secure and guaranteed sales.
The experience of the staff at Ittigel enables them to have a clear understanding of their clients needs. This makes it possible to satisfy their requirements, by working professionally and honestly and also to enhance the brand that the companies represent.
