Attard & Co. Wines
Attard & Co. Wines begins
In June 2001 the Foodstuffs Business Group begins to trade in wines and spirits as it widens its brand and product portfolios by obtaining jurisdiction over a variety of fine wine labels and liquors such as Michele Chiarlo, Sella & Mosca, Guigal, Vigna San Pedro, Simonsig and Peter Lehmann
Attard & Co starts importing foodstuffs
This year marked yet another strategic turn for the company. Cesare Fiorucci S.p.A., the leading Italian label for fine processed meats, and later, cheeses, accepts Attard & Co. to represent its interest in Malta on an exclusive basis. This representation allowed the company to enter the foodstuffs line of business, further diversifying its product portfolio.
That same year, the youngest two Pellegrini Petit brothers, Walter and Tonio, met with Signor D`Antona, who later became their commission agent after introducing them to Cesare Fiorucci.
1952 is a significant year in the organisation’s history as it marks the occasion the company acquired offices in the country’s capital Valletta.
In post-war Malta business was already booming and by 1952 Attard & Co was on a progressive growth path which allowed management to take the decision to move office. Valletta was the main business hub at the time and under new direction Attard & Co moved to a new and more spacious office closer to city gate
