In the autumn of 2007, Toronto-bred Foodies “Papa” Joe Lombardi and Vikas (Vik) Sharma started sharing their homemade recipes for what would become La Natura Fine Foods.
Within two months, the products they conceived were being sampled out of a new fine food market near the Forest Hill neighbourhood in Toronto. The products sold so well during that Christmas season they decided to expand the business and approached other fine food markets in Toronto.
Word spread quickly, and in a short time La Natura became available at well-known markets in the Toronto area. La Natura creates food that is free from added preservatives, is homemade in small batches and entices the senses to be awakened.
