      THE HERITAGE OF GINO'S

      GOD, FAMILY, TRADITIONS, MEMORIES

      THATS WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE

      The heritage of our company began over a century ago in the small village of Donnici, Italy located on the sunny hillsides of Calabria.

      The people of Donnici took great pride in their close ties to agriculture, which at the turn of the last century was the mainstay of the regions. For most, sunrise to sunset was spent planting, cultivating, and harvesting the crops, tending to the animals, and maintaining their vineyards and orchards in the surrounding countryside. Delicious and bountiful food, warmly shared with friends and family, was at the very center of their lives and served as a foundation to the storytelling that deeply rooted generations in traditions and heritage.

      Wheat to make homemade pasta and fresh crusty breads; tomatoes, olives and olive oil, and an abundance of fruits and vegetables were often harvested from the family's own land. Hand crafted Salumi, wonderfully delectable Italian cheese, produced by artisan cheese makers who made just a form or two a day from the milk of their small herds, almost always adorned the table.

      It was into this culture that Luigi Bozzo, the founder of Ginos, was born in 1931, one of nine children, son of a coal miner, in the small village of Donnici. Here he learned the art of making fine Italian food.
