About Us

International Oyster & Seafoods is a South Australian family owned and operated company which will be celebrating 50 years in business in 2008.

The company is run by the second generation of the Del Medico family, brothers Mario and Angie Del Medico, son-in-law Vito Paparella with the founder of the company, Dick (Diego) Del Medico still coming in to work daily.

The business was started in 1958 in Hindley Street as International Oyster Bar and Restaurant and by 1960 the restaurant had earned a reputation for the quality of their oysters which started the wholesaling of oysters and then later other seafood to well known restaurants and nightclubs of that era.
