In 1969, Neriku Zammit and his wife Jane opened a humble shop in Valletta selling homemade sfinneg (battered fish) and chips. Neriku had always had a passion for creating delicious food, and people quickly flocked to him for his genuinely wholesome products. He was an entrepreneur at heart and a visionary leader. The first local businessman to invest in a commercial ravioli machine and to set up a system to mass produce and distribute frozen goods throughout the Maltese islands, he also expanded his business to outside catering.
Neriku’s sons, Charles and Raymond, took over the business and are, to this day, the directors of the company. Charles and Raymond focused on the food manufacturing sector, supplying hotels, canteens, and supermarkets with a variety of frozen food products and sweets. By this time, the company required larger facilities and equipment, so they relocated to our current 1000m2 manufacturing site in Corradino Industrial Estate.
The third generation of the Zammit family – Joseph, Karl, Anne Marie and Christian – are all involved in the managerial aspect of Neriku Catering, each having worked at the business for several years. With their combined varied experience, working both locally and abroad, and a variety of different educational backgrounds between them, this third generation are able to bring new and fresh ideas and a renewed energy into the business. The company is now focused on two main sectors: outside catering, and contract catering.
Neriku’s innovative way of thinking led him to his success, and he has passed this on to his family. As a company, Neriku Catering is constantly seeking to upgrade and modernize infrastructure, by investing in the latest catering equipment and making sure that the team of talented chefs and pâtissiers are always up-to-date with the latest culinary trends and are passionately seeking to create original, delicious and beautifully presented food.
