September 27/Buffalo, N.Y./Press Release -- In 1963, Rosina operated as a small storefront sausage shop in Buffalo, NY servicing neighborhood meat markets, supermarkets and restaurants; 50 years later, Rosina Food Products Inc. has two production facilities that make more than 100 different frozen specialty products sold nationally and internationally.

In March 2000, Rosina Holdings Inc. acquired the assets of Celentano Bro Inc., and Celentano Food Products Inc. became the frozen pasta and entrée company, which is a natural fit to Rosina’s frozen meatball product offerings. In December of 2002, Rosina Food Products Inc. purchased a 90,000-square-foot facility in West Seneca, N.Y., which has become the production facility for the company's ravioli, specialty pasta and entrées. In July of 2006, certain assets of Italian Village, a pasta company,  were acquired from High Liner Foods (USA) Inc. and moved to the West Seneca facility. In December 2011, another acquisition brought the San Rallo Pasta Division of Mitsui Foods Inc. into Rosina's stable.

Enthusiastic about the future, Russell states, “The past 50 years have given us plenty of reasons to celebrate. Our company has come a long way over the years and we couldn’t be more thrilled with our progress.” With a steady and strategic growth plan, the Corigliano brothers will continue to lead the company in an industry that has experienced its own evolution throughout the years. “We will continue to grow and change and carry on from when my father started Rosina and we will continue each day to keep the Rosina difference alive,” adds Frank. “We will stay committed to producing and developing the finest quality products that our customers and industry demand now and long into the future. The possibilities are endless and our future is bright!”
