John Volpi arrived in America in 1898 with a craft and a dream and in 1902 he opened Volpi Foods on The Hill specializing in cacciatore - a small dried salami small enough to fit into the pockets of local clay miners. John later brought his nephew, Armando, from Italy to be his apprentice and in 2002 the business was passed to his daughter, current CEO, Lorenza. Volpi Foods has always used meat from local farms to ensure the freshest meat. You can still find Volpi Foods at its original location.
