The reason behind Di Rita's (by Andrew Di Rita)
Updated: Dec 17, 2019
I have an ongoing ambition for personal development and I strongly believe what we eat has a massive connection and a risk factor for depression and anxiety. I study daily the benefits of food and nature which has become my way of life. Whether I am meditating or researching...I am always bringing my knowledge into the kitchen when cooking and speaking to staff regularly about the passion of Di Rita's. Di Rita's is more than a business.... it is a project with a vision.
Di Rita’s Mission - fresh food “eat well, live well, love life” - so many times we grab something quick on the go not thinking about where that food has come from and the effects on us. At Di Rita’s we have a life long journey that is our project...we will never EVER give up on our journey of health & personal development and this all starts with the food we eat...we will always source the best for our customers and this is the reason behind Di Rita’s Farm where the plans for development in 2020 will have the community involved. Knowing where your fruit and vegetables come from is half the battle.
The Pizzeria & Deli -
We believe you can have food on the go and treat yourself to a take away without the need for guilt and that is one of the reasons for the opening of our Pizzeria & Deli...no nasty added preservatives in our breads or cakes, using only organic flour. (one of the reasons that made me so passionate to open the Pizzeria was a trip I had to a local supermarket, where I turned over a pizza box and read the ingredients to find 37 ingredients some of which do not even remotely sound like it should be involved with food! Pizza is simple and should be enjoyed. Our Bakery which is open during the day is somewhere you can go and chill out whilst enjoying a fresh ciabatta (a dough that has been slowly risen) that has not been frozen and ready made. Fresh daily sourdough and a range from our Deli. We only prepare fresh for our customers as we believe we all deserve the best. This is more than a restaurant to us!
We are passionate and honest in our vision to raise the bar and set new standards. I believe everyone has the ability to grow and develop themselves- we take pleasure in supporting people through the creation of opportunity and friendship.
Di Rita's Motto: is to 'laugh our way through life with a stubborn commitment to serve & grow'
