La Baia dei Formaggi
Francesco Occhiuto first opened the doors to the Montreal landmark, La Baia dei Formaggi, in 1973. La Baia dei Formaggi was founded on a passion for cheese and quality Italian products, and a desire to help the Italian community feel at home. In 1997 Mr. Occhiuto was the first to import Italian Parma Prosciutto in Canada!
