We’re passionate about pasta, but we also believe that quality ingredients are just the beginning of eating well. It’s about sharing experiences, passing down traditions, creating memories, and telling your own personal story through the dishes you create.
Over a century later, every box of Ronzoni pasta is made with these stories in mind.
Ronzoni pasta brings friends and families to the table; the story that unfolds from there is up to you
In 1881, a young boy emigrated from the small fishing village of San Fruttuoso, Italy, to the United States. His name would become synonymous with a kitchen cupboard staple and one of the most recognized brands in America: Ronzoni®.
Emanuele Ronzoni was in his teens when he got started in the macaroni trade in New York. Just eleven years after arriving in the U.S., he launched his own small macaroni company with a partner and, later, joined forces with two others to create the Atlantic Macaroni Company in Queens, NY.
In 1915, he went into business on his own, starting the company that still bears his name, the Ronzoni® Macaroni Company. By the time World War I ended, Ronzoni® and its famous Genoa-style, or fancy-cut shaped noodles, had firmly established itself as one of the best-known brands in the east.
New production plants were built in Long Island City, NY. By employing the latest manufacturing technologies of the day and committing to only quality ingredients, Ronzoni® became the number one pasta in the largest pasta market in the U.S., New York.
Emanuele Ronzoni was eventually succeeded by his son. The 1950s and 1960s marked periods of significant growth. Ronzoni® macaroni became available in most states along the eastern and western seaboards and Puerto Rico.
Ronzoni® celebrated its 100 Year Anniversary with festivities in its home market of New York as well as in Florida. From humble beginnings in a small factory in Queens, the Ronzoni® family of brands has evolved, launching new products to meet the ever-changing needs of pasta lovers while showing gratitude for loyal consumers and their passion for pasta.
