Benedikt Imports is a family-owned business established in 1967. Founded by Mr Isaac Benedikt, it began operations out of a garage in Elsternwick, supplying Kosher food to the Jewish community. As demand for his products grew, Isaac moved to a warehouse in Prahran in the 1970s and later to a larger manufacturing/distribution warehouse in the same suburb.In 1998 the company moved to the current premises in Moorabbin. Mr Benedikt’s three sons joined the company’s management ranks; namely Eli in 1993, Mordi in 2001 and Moshe in 2008. Today they look to further expand the business within Australia and overseas.
For many years Benedikt Imports has been the largest importer of Kosher food in Australia and the biggest supplier of Kosher food to major supermarket chains in Australia. Benedikt Imports is the sole agent for Nestlé’s Osem - Israel, and to many other leading kosher suppliers from around the globe. These include world-renowned wines: Baron Herzog and Kedem from USA; Carmel, Binyamina, Or Haganuz from Israel; as well as French and Italian wines, to supply the increasing demand for fine wines.
We continue to serve our customers in Australia, New Zealand, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand, as well as growing into mainstream food service and retail outlets.Benedikt Imports has a strong private label focus and works closely with retail customers to source products from all corners of the world.
