About us

Hello and a very warm welcome to Edeli.

Nick and Tracy Hayward, husband and wife team, owners of Edeli and Illuminada, managers, event organisers, chief cooks and bottle washers, you name it… but all based on the very sound premise of great quality Spanish foods, selected and imported by ourselves and supplied at fair prices to individual customers, businesses and outside events.

Edeli Limited has been in business since 2006, importing and supplying direct to our customers some of the finest foods from Spain. Today we offer a range of top quality products including the very finest Spanish extra virgin olive oils, flavoured virgin olive oils and virgin nut oils all from Mallafre, aged wine balsamic vinegars from Sotolongo, El Avion grade 1 saffron and paprika, and the very best rice for paella, Bomba rice from D.O. Valencia.

Our mission is to introduce these wonderful Spanish foods into as many home kitchens as possible so that more and more people can experience the difference in their cooking! To this end our prices are incredibly reasonable, and our packaging and delivery processes totally geared up to making sure our products reach you speedily and in perfect condition. So do try us! Take advantage of our featured products, and we always have something tasty on our special offers page.

Our beautifully packaged hampers make the most welcome and much appreciated gifts whether personal or corporate, for Christmas, birthdays and other special occasions.

We also supply our exclusive products wholesale to the fine food trade: to farm shops, food halls, delicatessens and restaurants and to specialist distributors - we do not supply to supermarkets. If you have a fine food business and would like to sell any of the products we import, call us on 01929 472569 and we can discuss terms and arrangements suitable for your requirements.

Illuminada is our outside events and catering business. Using our imported Spanish oils, spices and rices together with fresh local produce we cook the most delectable giant paellas and tapas, which we serve at a variety of outside events mainly in the south of England, ranging from the Anonymous Travelling Market to the Great Dorset Steam Fair.

We love catering for weddings, corporate events and private parties so if you're planning one please contact us for a quote! Do connect with us on our dedicated Illuminada Facebook page to follow our comings and goings.

Our office, warehouse and well stocked catering kitchen are all based at our home in the beautiful north Dorset village of Okeford Fitzpaine. If you are local to us you may prefer to personally collect your Edeli order – you’ll only save a very reasonable £8 delivery charge but it would be lovely to meet you and if the timing’s right we’ll make you a strong Spanish coffee while you’re visiting!

Best regards Nick and Tracy!


PS We are a member of the Guild of Fine Food, and Food Lovers Britain. We also support Buy Dorset – using local ingredients in the preparation of our paellas whenever we possibly can.

We hope you’ll find our brand new website very straightforward to use - and order! - but we’ll also welcome any constructive feedback on ways in which we can improve it for you - just send us your comments using the enquiry form.
