TODAY A THRIVING FAMILY BUSINESS

Antonio Tudino (Giorgio’s son) is the majority shareholder along with Salvatore Devivo (Managing Director). Other family members are still part of the operations of the business. GCL not only supplies Italian products but offers a vast range of food ingredients manufactured here on site and from continental Europe.

A key strength of the GCL business is that the directors work closely with our customers and suppliers to source and provide premium quality authentic products which meet and exceed our customers’ needs and aspirations.

GCL’s European suppliers are closely monitored by our Technical Team, which includes regular visits and audits to ensure that such facilities are operating to the highest standards of food safety and legislative compliance.
