Vito D’Allesandro, John Fornino and Phillip Casamento came to America from Italy in the 1960s. They began Casa Imports with the mission to provide high quality, consistent products while providing a superior level of customer service. Since then, Casa Imports has grown to service five states in the Northeast with over 3,000 customers.
Casa Imports focuses on pizzeria/trattoria and casual dining customers in Upstate New York and Northern Pennsylvania. Casa Imports offers well-known national brands along with premium exclusive brands such as the widely recognized Cora and Casa labels.
During September 2021 Casa Imports entered into a strategic partnership agreement with Ferraro Foods. This partnership is the next step in Ferraro Foods growth strategy and will enable Ferraro to service their upstate NY customers with greater productivity and efficiency. Casa Imports will benefit with access to expanded technological resources and transportation synergies, while maintaining its focus of serving end user pizzerias and restaurants in the Upstate New York and Northern PA regions.
“Both Ferraro Foods and Casa Imports have long been institution leaders in the Italian foodservice distribution segment. The SKU additions of Casa Imports’ hallmark brands will add to Ferraro Foods’ ever-growing portfolio of quality exclusive brand offerings. Casa Imports’ location in Utica, New York will position us to better service our customers in the upstate New York market. The addition of Casa Imports to the Ferraro Foods Family will arm us firepower needed to further support our pizzeria/trattoria and restaurant community from Maine to Miami,” said Michael Giammarino, CEO of Ferraro Foods.
