About Us

Adriatic is a family business and we’re not only happy but proud to bring Segafredo to South Africa. We have travelled all over the globe and on all our culinary adventures we’ve never found a coffee that is as profoundly Italian and unique as Segafredo.

We are importers & distributors of speciality foods, wines and catering equipment. The best Italy has to offer. Much like our coffee.

Our company was founded in 1970 by Renzo Reffo. Later on Maurizio and Roberto Reffo joined the family business and moulded the company into the finest importers and distributors of Italian foods, wines, coffee and catering equipment in South Africa.

Sustainability: Preserving our planet

We may be one of the world’s leading coffee companies, but as we see it, our corporate responsibility extends well beyond our customers and shareholders to the entire planet and everyone on it. That’s why we’re committed to good environmental stewardship. Massimo Zanetti Beverage has implemented sustainable practices at every step of our vertically integrated operation, from farming to distribution. Here are just a few examples.

  • Water used during processing is cleaned and  reused in the fields, while coffee-cherry pulp and mulch resulting from pruning are put back into  the land to enrich the soil.
  • As a single-source supplier for retailers that carry our national brands and private-label coffees, we provide distribution via a single-truck delivery system. This greatly reduces our carbon footprint.
  • Our ongoing research and development continually improves upon MZB’s sustainable coffee solutions. MZB-USA launched the world’s first BPI® certified 100% compostable single-serve coffee pod. The new PurPod100™ is certified to be fully compostable in industrial facilities and we are actively engaging conversations  about the benefits of coffee composting.
  • Several of our products bear the frog seal of Rainforest Alliance Certified farms and are managed according to rigorous criteria designed to conserve wildlife and safeguard soils and waterways. They also help to protect workers’ livelihoods, bringing long-term stability for their families and communities.
  • We promote safe and fair farming practices around the globe and give back to the communities where we work and live by providing healthcare, education, and assistance to those in need.
