Giovanni Food supplies the foodservice industry with tomato-based sauces, such as pasta sauce, pizza sauce, salsa and bruschetta.

The SQF Institute, an industry coalition focused on food safety, granted the certifications.
To earn the certification, Giovanni Food had to demonstrate quality control and food safety practices.
