LUIGI FINAZZI


Accounts Manager

At age six, Luigi was making coffee for diners in his parents’ restaurants in Bergamo, Italy, and has worked in the food industry ever since. In 2000 he qualified as a chef and arrived in Australia in 2008, where he quickly found work in an Italian restaurant in Brisbane. While at the restaurant, Luigi used Visco as a supplier and quickly came under the radar of Visco owner Luca Tortora, who offered him a job in product development. Luigi jumped at the chance to work for a fine food manufacturer that “valued quality over quantity”. As part of Visco’s talented team of chefs, Luigi cooks for many of Australia’s top restaurants – no longer just one restaurant.
