WorldWide Co. Ltd was established way back in 1980 by two partners - Charles Pace and Joseph Zammit. Charles started out as a banker. After a glowing career, which saw him spend 17 years in the banking sector, he decided that it was time for a change. He joined Joseph and put his vast financial experience to the company's use.
Joseph, with nearly 10 years’ experience in the field made a name for himself as one of the top sales people in Malta. He is also a great chef and cooking remains to this day one of his favourite hobbies. This attribute he found to be a great asset, as it helped him understand the products as much as the clients who use them.
Over the years, WorldWide Co. Ltd has established itself as one of the market leaders in Malta in the supply of foodstuff, raw materials and equipment to the catering industry. In the last few years, more emphasis has been placed on the frozen line section… and this is growing very fast indeed.
The company represents some of the major European and world-renowned brands in its line, such as Bensdorp, Callebaut, Irca, Lakeland Dairies, Martin Braun, Rational, Irinox and many more. The policy of WorldWide Co. Ltd is ‘Quality before Price’, while keeping in mind the needs of an extremely price-conscious market. This means that the company does not stock a product just because it is cheap. One of its strong points has always been innovation and it are always on the lookout for new products to add to its line.
In 1997 the company moved to new premises, covering over 3,000 square meters of floor space over three floors. As well as the traditional layout of offices, storage and showrooms, the new premises includes an innovative demonstration kitchen - the only one on the island - where customers are offered in-house training. This has resulted in a great improvement in quality, presentation and type of products on display in the Maltese islands. ‘Team cooking live' sessions are also held on Rational's self-cooking centre.
Year after year, WorldWide Co. Ltd has increased the number and variety of its product staff and turnover. Today it is considered as one of the Island’s leaders in its field. 2011 saw an important change in the company. With Joseph’s retirement, Charles took over as the company’s sole director. This was a time of great challanges as well as innovation for both Worldwide and Charles. With the help of capable staff and a strong sales force, Charles’ leadership has taken the company to new success and achievements.
