Our Story

The mom&me® Foods Story

Six generations ago in the small agricultural city of Carlentini, Sicily – Italy,
our ancestors grew hot banana peppers and created a zesty, hearty Italian hot pepper sauce …
The idea to market my great grandparent’s Premium Italian Hot Pepper Sauce began when I was five years old. I loved the garden fresh smell of the sauce cooking on my grandmother’s stove while I swept the floor. At dinnertime we gathered around the table discussing events of the day and enjoying the sauce over homemade sausages, spaghetti, eggs, Italian breads, and various meats. My grandpa Joe especially loved to talk about his garden where he raised all of the ingredients for this sauce. Today, our garden fresh, spicy sauce is brought to you by four generations of women from our family: Carmella,Debra, Farrah and Sophia
