Our Humble Beginnings
IGF was founded by Maurizio DiBenigno in 1987. A life-long passion for quality products, fine tasting foods, and a wealth of experience in the food service industry inspired the principles on which Maurizio has built this company. His commitment to the needs and desires of his clients and his determination to source products of quality and value built the reputation of IGF as one of the premier gourmet food import and distribution companies in the industry. From its conception, IGF was and still is a family-owned and operated business founded on solid values and guiding principles that we continue to grow and develop.
In December of 2019, Christine DiBenigno became president of IGF after 19 years of experience in the company. She and Maurizio continue to expand the company vision of not only quality food and excellent service, but also growing and enriching a diverse employee base. On March 29, 2021, IGF broke ground on a new state-of-the-art facility in Woodbridge, Virginia. This new central headquarters is scheduled to open in 2022.
