DeLallo Authentic Italian Foods

Website

The George DeLallo Company was founded with the ideals of offering true authentic Italian foods with integrity and consistency. In the mid-1940s, Mr. George DeLallo began selling Italian grocery items door-to-door in the immigrant neighborhoods of Western Pennsylvania. In 1954, he and his wife Madeline established a grocery store in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, which specialized in authentic Italian foods. Soon after, they began to develop and sell traditional Italian products under the DeLallo name.

As the years progressed, the retail and wholesale businesses grew. In the 1980s, DeLallo pioneered the olive and antipasti bar concept, which has become a staple of grocery stores around the U.S. and has revolutionized the American consumer’s experience of table olives and antipasti.

Today, DeLallo’s original Jeannette retail store remains a vibrant and beloved part of the community and DeLallo products are distributed throughout the country. Whether it is found on traditional Italian grocery items such as olive oil, pasta, vinegars and tomatoes, or on our complete line of cured olives and antipasti, the DeLallo label guarantees consumers authenticity, integrity, and consistency.

Fresh From The Farm Juices

Our Story

I have vivid memories of my childhood and waking up to mom asking my brother and I what we would like to have for breakfast. The unique thing about our experience however was, when it came to juice, it wouldn’t be out of a can, box, concentrate, or frozen. It was always fresh.

The juice would literally be made with only fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of them local, and always organic. She used 2 juicers to make these out of, one electrical cold-pressed, one manually cold-pressed. Every day, including school days, we would drink and enjoy a variety of freshly squeezed juices (sometimes several times a day).  

My father was also very keen on us having the freshest produce for our juices, and would plant what he could in our not so spacious garden. We would enjoy seasonal varieties of fresh juice with much of the produce picked right from our backyard. Some of the produce we grew in our garden, which I now also use, included spinach, kale, beet, peppers, carrot, herbs (cilantro and parsley were a must).

The notion of juice not freshly squeezed was a completely foreign concept to us. We actually thought what we were doing was completely normal.

And in this way, with forever gratitude to my loving family, I humbly try to carry this tradition of fresh juicing for others to enjoy. Every bottle of juice we make is cold-pressed, made with as many fresh and local ingredients as possible, and 100% organic.
