A Real Italian Family Honoring A Real Italian Tradition
There’s nothing more Italian than meatballs, pasta, and enjoying them with family. For more than 50 years, that’s been at the heart of the Rosina brand. A real Italian family-owned company … honoring a real Italian family tradition … to bring your family, Real Italian Goodness.
The proud tradition of Rosina began in 1963 with a small store front sausage business in Buffalo, NY, servicing neighborhood meat markets, supermarkets
and restaurants. Founded by James Corigliano, he named this family-owned business after his wife Rose, which in Italian translates to Rosina.
In the mid-1970’s as the business continued to grow, Rose and James’ sons Russell and Frank joined the company. In 1981, a new larger facility was purchased which allowed Rosina to expand into new markets and make their products available across the country.
In 1997, Russell and Frank assumed responsibility for day-to-day operations, Russ as President & CEO and Frank as Executive Vice President. James continued on as Chairman of the Board for until his passing in July of 2012, and Rose, while she remains the inspiration for our recipes, imparts the Italian traditions to the next generation of her family.
