About Us

Buona Vita was founded in 1987 by Paul Infranco – a Sicilian immigrant with big ambitions. He had one simple goal in mind: to make a great-tasting Italian-style meatball. Today, Buona Vita has become the leading producer of meatballs, sausages, eggplants, pizza toppings, plant-based proteins, and other specialty items.

From our humble beginnings in South Jersey, we’ve grown to a team of over 125 employees. We offer customized solutions for audiences of all appetites and are as hungry as ever to help you succeed.

Our Commitment

Our food is only as good as the people and process behind it. That’s why we’re uncompromising in the quality of our products, our commitment to customer support and ensuring the best flavor in every bite.

As our client’s needs become more customized, we respond in ways that marry culinary ‘old world traditions’ with advanced ‘new world’ food manufacturing technology.

We welcome you to take a bite out of the good life. Or, as we would say, Buona Vita.
