Due it her booming economy, Bangladesh has attracted many foreign companies to invest and bring resources to be part of this unique growth. A significant number of youngsters, graduated from some of the best universities in Europe with are moving here to make their dreams come true. Such is the story of The Italian Kitchen.
The initiators of The Italian Kitchen, Filippo Ferri and Alberto Ruscalla, two young Italians, are the newest faces in the food industry startup scene. “The main concept is to present the food exactly as the one you find in Italy,” said Filippo, co-founder and Chief Production Executive. “I have been a chef for eight years, cooking in the major capitals of Europe like Paris and Rome. Making food is not only my job but my passion. We will never do fake Italian products like Alfredo Pasta or Meatball spaghetti. All we do is just Italian food, in its purest form.”
The Italian kitchen is now moving in order to be an established identity in Bangladesh, like Pizza Roma or few others.
“We choose Bangladesh because it is the land of opportunities,” said Alberto, co-founder and CEO of the company. “In particular, I have been impressed by the good heart of this food-loving nation. To be honest, I would never have established my first business at 26, in a country 6000 km away from home, if I wasn’t in love with the culture and the people here.” The whole project started with one product: the famous Italian Tiramisu. Aside from their regular jobs, they started making and selling their recipe at Cookups, an online platform allowing private chefs to sell their homemade dishes.
In its core, The Italian Kitchen is an online shop, which aims to make the busy life easier as anyone can choose and order the offered food just with a click on their website. Customers can also use partner platforms like Foodpanda, Hungrynaki, Cookups, UberEats, Shohoz Food, Pathao food and many more order food from them.
