Our Team

Our team is specialised and highly experienced. Our priority is to invest in long-term relationships with clients and to continually demonstrate that we provide the best value and service available.


Nick Novi

Nick Novi

Managing Director

Nick has been in the food industry for over 20 years, working with major Italian manufacturers and major importers. In 2004 he believed there was a gap in the market to bring UK buyers into direct contact with manufacturers and Campania foods was born, growing under his guidance steadily since then.

His knowledge of the canned tomato business is second to none. Nick is based in the UK but also speaks excellent Italian as his family originate from the Campania region. This gives him a love of Italy as well as first-hand knowledge of the immediate area that many of our products are produced in, all of which results in uniquely easeful communications between the two countries.
