Product Selection

Our Italian-based Purchasing Office has spent many years sourcing artisan producers of the finest Italian food and Spanish food from across Italy and Spain for our current range. Product selection is centred on five key criteria: Quality, Value, Uniqueness, Sustainable Production & Taste!


Our online delicatessen stocks over 900 Mediterranean food products and includes numerous award winners and an extensive selection of premium organic products. We have a great range of authentic Italian Pasta and Spanish Rice, a perfect start to any Mediterranean dish!


We work very hard to balance quality with value for money. For example as well as offering a selection of Speciality Pasta we also have a wide range of value for money Long Pasta and Short Pasta to ensure value is delivered with every order online.

Sustainable Production

We select farmers and artisan producers who actively use integrated, environmentally sustainable methods. Our range of Tomatoes is a great example of this with a selection of Classic, Sun-Dried or San-Marzano Tomatoes to choose from!


The vast majority of our products can only be purchased in the UK through Mediterranean Direct. We do our best to help deliver unique Italian Food, from delicious Antipasti to traditional Panettone. Not to forget our range of Spanish Food with a selection of Spanish Tapas including delicious Olives and a Mediterranean Fish selection.


We aim to deliver an authentic taste of the Mediterranean when you order online with us! It is never easy to describe taste on a website of course, but 18 of our products have won Gold Stars at the Great Taste Awards, widely considered to be the “Oscars” of gourmet food in the UK.

Customer Service

We take customer service extremely seriously because we know our customers appreciate quick, friendly and accountable communication. We also welcome feedback on any area of our service but in particular we love knowing what you think of the products and we actively seek quality comparisons.

Whatever your request may be, whatever information you require, whatever feedback you’d like to give us, someone from our dedicated customer services team will get back to you within 24 hours, usually within 2 hours.
