Family Tradition

Second generation Italian immigrant and World War II Veteran Peter Tarantino began a Foodservice and Manufacturing company over five decades ago in San Diego, California.

From the start "Old Country" Tarantino traditional Mild Italian and Hot Italian Sausage recipes were instant area successes. With the popularity of the Mild & Hot Pete Sr. soon added additional traditional varieties: Bratwurst, Chorizo, Breakfast and Kielbasa.

Over the next few decades Pete, Sr’s dedication and ingenuity created one of the Premier Sausage Manufacturers on the west coast. Extraordinary leadership continues with Pete’s children; Pete Tarantino Jr., Mark Tarantino and Bernadette Tarantino.
