About Us


Rastelli Foods Group has been at the center of food management since 1976. We are an industry leading corporation supplying the finest hotels, restaurants, institutions, and retail markets with the highest quality food products and service. Since our inception, we have expanded our operation of eight retail locations to three high quality, USDA inspected processing facilities, warehouses, and distribution centers.

Rastelli Foods Group is a world-class provider of products that set the standard in taste, quality, cleanliness, and safety from each of our food processing plants. We take ownership of the production process; hand trimming, processing and packing in our state-of-the-art facilities. Through direct ownership or proprietary partnership; we select the finest products for our customers and carefully monitor quality throughout all of the steps needed to fulfill orders.

All this growth came from one family with big dreams and a plan to make it happen. Read the feature on the Rastelli family in the Philadelphia Business Journal to see a more personal side of growth within a family business. Read it here »

Today, commercial clients are able to expand their food product offerings with an extensive menu of gourmet meats, seafood, heat and serve items, desserts and gift packages through our national home delivery program.

Our Process

At Rastelli Foods Group, quality assurance begins with Vertical Integration. Through direct ownership and/or proprietary partnerships with suppliers, we ensure quality and safety at all points of distribution. This program results in safer, higher quality products direct to our customers.

Safe, high-quality products start with the compassionate treatment of farm animals. This is incredibly important us at Rastelli Foods Group. We believe we can do more and that is why for all eligible products, we are committing to earn an independent welfare certification recognized by the ASPCA® Shop With Your Heart program by 2021.
