In 1967, Romolo Pede and his brother, Sante established Pede Brothers Italian Specialty Foods in Rotterdam, New York. Together, they started the Pede family tradition of using the finest ingredients to make our specialty products. When Sante passed away in 1982, Romolo and his wife, Rose continued the business. With Romolo’s hard work and passion for what he loved to do, along with Rose’s unconditional support, they grew the family business together. Today, the next generation continues the family tradition. Romolo and Rose’s children, Romolo Jr., David, and AnnMarie are committed to offering the highest quality Italian specialty food products. The Pede children have extended their father’s tradition of pasta making by combining the finest quality ingredients with the use of modern technology. Today, you can find Pede Brothers Italian Specialty Foods, along with its many private labels, in stores throughout the country.
The Pede Family also owns and operates Pede and Sons Cash & Carry, a retail and wholesale store located in Rotterdam, New York. Our customer base consists of local restaurants, local food retailers and loyal members of the community.
