A love for family, a passion for innovation and an appetite for traditional Italian fare are what drove Robert, Elio and David to establish Genobile Brothers Food Distributors. In 1996, the brothers recognised a gap in the market for quality Italian produce in Australia and since, company has gone from strength to strength.
With roots from the Italian region of Abruzzo, Genobile Brothers’ goal is to deliver a taste of the Mediterranean to Australia.
Together, Robert, Elio and David share over 30 years of experience in the Australian food industry. These days, Genobile Brothers work with a portfolio of over 150 brands including De Cecco, Lurisia and Australian-born Princi Smallgoods.
The diverse range of products continue to expand from pasta, antipasto and cheese to chocolate and spirits – consistently supplying customers with quality and precision. Genobile Brothers pride themselves on the continuous support of independent Australia businesses including grocers, delicatessens, cafes and restaurants.
Central distribution is based in Victoria with further expansion of food distribution centres in Perth and Tasmania in recent years. Sub-distributors are located in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.
Genobile Brothers employs fifty full-time and, ten casual staff, with eight food-delivery vehicles. The company has sixteen sales executives to cater to independent supermarkets, delicatessens and other retail outlets and, a full-time Food Service Executive across Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania. Genobile Brothers also has two merchandiser/demonstrator/chefs that present food-tasting demonstrations of products at selected customer outlets.
