is fine-quality pasta with Italian authenticity that South Africans have always loved. Fattis and Monis is a part of South Africa’s Italian heritage. The two names didn’t always live so happily side by side. Luigi Fatti opened a tiny grocery store to do business in early Johannesburg in 1896. He sold macaroni, olive oil and wines from Italy. Ten years later, Pietro and Giacomo Moni established Moni Brothers Limited. They catered for the rising demand for Italian beverages and delicacies. The First World War caused a scarcity of imported goods, so the Moni brothers began to manufacture their own goods locally, and became a huge rival of Fatti’s business. Eventually the competing families signed a peace treaty. In 1953, the Moni brothers secured a controlling interest in the Fatti business. Tiger Brands finally brought the two companies together as Fattis & Monis in 1982. Today, the company continues to produce the fine-quality pasta with Italian authenticity that South Africans have always loved. Fattis and Monis
