Our history


DF Experts was born in 2014 from an initiative of Andrea Pigni. The main goal was to help Italian producers of “Food and Beverage” to better compete on the European and overseas markets by positioning their products in the world of Travel Retail and in particular in the World’s best airports.
The long lasting experience of Andrea in the Travel Retail market has been passed down by his father, Carlo Pigni, who has been operating in the Italian’s airports since the 70’s, cooperating with the best Italian producers of fine food.
With the time the range of services offered to the customers has expanded and the number of brands represented by DF Experts has increased. We have managed to bring “the taste of Italy” in some European airports and recently DF Experts has been expanding its operations into new developing markets and has brought some Italian brands in Asia and Eastern Europe.

From the beginning of our history we promote the products of small and large Italian companies whose motto and main characteristic is proudly “made in Italy”, placing them in the most important national and international duty free shops and foreign markets.
