An Online Petition Has Been Circulating About This Famous Pasta
Ronzoni is a very popular pasta brand that people from all over the world enjoy.
According to Ronzoni,
In 1881, Emanuele Ronzoni, who was only a young boy at the time, came from San Fruttuoso, Italy to the United States. It wasn’t until his teenage years that he created something that would make hearts happy, stomachs full and families laughing around the dinner table for centuries. At the age of 11,
“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 the early 1900’s, Ronzoni decided to go into the business by himself and even start the company which was referred to as,
“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.”
Ronzoni Was Established And Quickly Grew All Over The World
According to Ronzoni,
“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.”
In 2015, Ronzoni celebrated their 100th anniversary.
