The original company was founded in Florence in 1880, it has always operated in the spice and grocery sector, importing directly from the countries of origin. In 1987 the Carapelli and Barbagli families (already owners of Carapelli olive oil) took control of the business and the company name and changed it to it's actual name "Drogheria & Alimentari". In January of 2003 they took over a company specialized in the industry sector located in Veneto. In January of 2004 they took over a company called Maribù from Lombardy which produces cake decorations.
