PRESS RELEASES – June 1, 2010
Columbus Foods Corporation Selects Coolearth Software’s Supply Chain Execution Solution to Streamline and Improve its Data Collection and Operations
A success story that epitomizes the American Dream began when the Italian-born founders of this family-owned business first came to America in 1917, bringing their traditional Italian recipes with them. Company founders settled in the predominantly Italian neighborhood of North Beach, in San Francisco, California. They soon realized that San Francisco’s mild weather and relative humidity were similar to that of Milan, Italy—and ideal for the production of salame. They opened the Columbus Salame Company, the cornerstone of Columbus Foods, and began producing superior quality, dry salami based on authentic, time-honored recipes.
90 years later, Columbus Foods boasts a workforce of 500 employees located in three manufacturing facilities and one Distribution warehouse across the San Francisco Bay Area. Besides marketing super premium salami and deli meats renowned for their authenticity, flavor and quality under the Columbus, Ticino and Buon Gusto Brands, Columbus delivers over 6000 products to specialty grocers all across the 9 Bay Area Counties. A “family-owned” culture still exists, anchored by an unmistakable passion (and expertise) in specialty foods – as they like to say, “Mangia. Viva. Amore.”
Columbus Foods is based in Hayward, California, and is comprised of two divisions: Columbus Specialty Brands, manufacturer of award-winning salami and premium deli meats and Columbus Specialty Products, nationally recognized supplier of fine foods for the retail and specialty food markets.
