Little Italy in the Bronx Sauce & Pasta

The Belmont BID is pleased to have partnered with Summer Garden Foods Manufacturing, a company known nationally for its Italian specialty food products.  Under this partnership, Summer Garden Foods will launch its latest national brand, Little Italy in the Bronx.

This is an opportunity to enhance and advance our brand beyond our region to a national audience.  National recognition like this will help advance the neighborhood as a destination for great authentic Italian food, products, and dining. The creation of the narrative around Little Italy in the Bronx was very important. The BID wanted to ensure how we were characterized was consistent with how we as a community see ourselves, and how our customers and supporters see us. Summer Garden Foods has been a great partner in understanding how important this narrative is.

Seven sauce varieties will be produced at their Green LEED certified® manufacturing facility, and will be made with all natural ingredients including imported Italian tomatoes, olive oil, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, garlic, onions, and basil. Imported Italian gnocchi, and bronze die pasta made from Tuscan wheat and water from the springs of Valdichiana have also been added to the product line.

Each product label pays homage to neighborhood. It describes what we have accomplished as a community, and aims to support and tell the story of what we have built, so that it grows and endures for another hundred years.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Little Italy in the Bronx products will be contributed to the BID.  These funds will help the BID preserve and advance the traditions of our community.
