Liguria Foods, Inc. provides premium quality meat toppings, including what many consider the market’s best-tasting pepperoni. We painstakingly follow our old-world recipes, providing our customers (and your customers) with the same performance and flavor each and every day.
Founded in Humboldt, Iowa, in 1974, our dry sausage business has continued to grow thanks to customers who appreciate the artisan approach we use to create high-quality pepperoni plus Genoa and hard salami. Liguria uses the highest quality ingredients – always fresh and never frozen – sourced directly from long-time area farms.
We specialize in foodservice, creating quality product for quality-minded pizzerias and sandwich shops (and their customers) that appreciate the authentic Italian taste of pepperoni and Italian-specialty meats from Liguria.
The dedicated production process merges modern technology with traditional touches, like a redwood drying room, enabling Liguria to create consistently delicious products. What results are premier toppings with dependable kitchen performance, for a difference consumers can see and taste.
In February 2016, Liguria began the next chapter as CTI Foods, a leading provider of custom food solutions to America’s top restaurant chains, acquired Liguria Foods.
CTI Foods, headquartered in Wilder, Idaho, was founded in 1985. CTI is a culinary-driven company that offers a diverse range of custom food solutions to the foodservice and restaurant industries, including raw and pre-cooked protein, soups and sauces, and dehydrated beans. CTI Foods has six state-of-the-art food processing facilities and has over 1,500 employees at its California, Idaho, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Texas locations.
