Francesco Lettieri Grew up in a small Italian town in the foothills of the great Monte Pollino, Calabria's largest mountain. As a boy he dreamed of bringing the food of his homeland to the shores of America.
After moving to the United States and pursuing his dream of importing specialty foods, Francesco created his own brand, named after the mountain he grew near, Monte Pollino.
The Monte Pollino brand is the culmination of over 30 years sourcing the finest specialty goods from Italy and around the world. The products are carefully picked from the finest producers, all with long histories and ties to their particular geographic territories -pasta sauces made with hand- picked Italian tomatoes, olives from the Kalamata region of Greece, and extra virgin olive oils from the Mediterranean's finest growing regions.
We believe that food brings us all together. We also believe that good quality, nutritious products do not need to cost a small fortune. With Monte Pollino you can enjoy the bounties of Italy and the Mediterranean at prices your family can afford. Buon Appetito!
