Fred Mortati


Meet Fred, a visionary with an unwavering commitment to excellence. A proud alumnus of Lafayette College, he graduated with a BA in Economics in 1988. Little did he know that this degree would pave the way for a remarkable career at Orlando Foods, his one and only professional home since graduating.

In 1992, Fred, alongside his cousin Carlo, took the bold step of purchasing Orlando Foods. With dedication and enthusiasm, Fred played an integral role in transforming Orlando Foods into a dynamic logistics, sales, and marketing hub for Italian food manufacturers. Fred’s true joy lies in educating food distributors and restaurateurs alike on the benefits of food products Made In Italy.  

In 1990, Fred married his high school sweetheart, Karen, and together, they’ve been blessed with three beautiful children, including their very own Alexandra, who now serves as the Marketing Director of the company.

When he’s not steering the ship at Orlando Foods, Fred’s passions take him to the slopes for skiing adventures, racetracks for thrilling drives, and around the world for exciting travels. Fred savors the adventures life has to offer, yet his most cherished moments are the ones spent with his beloved family.
