It started with good sauce.
Giovanni Food Co., Inc. has been making pasta sauces since 1934, when the DeMent family (our current CEO’s grandmother and great aunt) opened a tavern and the customers asked to take the Italian sauces home. This demand inspired the DeMents to start their own line of pasta sauce, which soon expanded into four different lines of products. The DeMents saw an opportunity and took it—a precursor of what lay ahead for Giovanni Foods.
Changing with the times.
From that homespun beginning, Giovanni has evolved into a leading Private Label and Co-Packaging partner for emerging and established brands. As the food business has continually changed over the years, we’ve helped our customers adapt and thrive with market-driven solutions like organic, clean label, and seasonal products as well as Flexible Pouch and PET packaging. As technologies and consumer tastes have continued to evolve, so have we.
