Angelina’s gurgling pasta sauce was made with the same process as Italian gourmet pasta.
But the company that makes it, Nonna’s, is moving its production to New York and the United States.
The New York Times reports that the company, which has operations in the United Kingdom and Canada, will be headquartered in the city of Albany.
It will be based at a former industrial site near the New York City subway system.
Angelina said it was a great move because it creates jobs for our team, our suppliers and our associates in New York.
“We are so excited to announce that we are expanding our operations to New Brunswick,” Angelina CEO John Pappas said in a statement.
“This is an important step in our evolution, and we are looking forward to making Angelina even better.”
Pappacini and his team will build a new facility that will have a production capacity of 10,000 cases per day, and will produce more than 6 million cases of Angelina per year.
Angelino is the second company to expand into New Jersey.
Nonna Foods announced plans to open a plant in Newark in January.
Nona’s employs 2,500 people in New Jersey and is based in nearby Hoboken.
