Saporista's team of taste scouts travel across Europe for you, searching out local and artisan food and drink products that we can deliver to your door.
Our name, Saporista, comes from the Italian word 'sapore' meaning 'taste' or 'flavour'. Our business is the culmination of the passion of its founders for bringing authentic, high quality food and drink from small artisan producers all over Europe to kitchen cupboards at home, where it can be used to create joyous occasions in our everyday lives.
Co-founder Sam's grandmother was Italian, and his family experiences of Italian style meal occasions inspired in him a passion not just for Italian cuisine, but for high quality ingredients and different cooking traditions across Europe.
Returning from an Italian holiday in 2019, Sam and his wife Liz filled their suitcase with delicious goodies, picked up in the backstreets of hilltop towns or farms. When stocks ran down, they found it difficult to source similar products in the UK, and wondered why fabulous artisan food is only available to us on holiday? Saporista was born in early 2020...
