Italian food import company making its mark in West Farms

An Italian food import company has taken its dot com operation and expanded to West Farms, giving residents a taste of the old country.

Gustiamo sits tucked along the industrial section of the Sheridan Expressway. It is one of many businesses starting to make its mark on the Bronx economy. Beatrice Ughi, co-owner of Gustiamo, says she sees more and more businesses moving into the area.

The company imports foods from Italy for its dot com operation and uses Bronx vendors to buy baskets used to ship products. The owners say they are hoping to form partnerships with companies on Arthur Avenue as a way to expand their business.
