About Us

Monterey Gourmet Foods has its roots in the sunny, Mediterranean-like coastline of Central California. Founded in 1989, we grew from a 400 square foot storefront where we produced great food by hand (food processors and hand operated pasta makers). We soon outgrew our surroundings. In 1994 we moved into a larger facility in Salinas, California (Monterey County) and adopted state-of-the-art packaging techniques to preserve flavor and extend product shelf-life. Monterey Gourmets was acquired by Pulmuone Foods USA in 2009, and we’ve continued to expand. Soon we’ll occupy more than 120,000 square feet in our new Gilroy, CA location. We employ 250 people.

Flavor, health and nutrition, all natural ingredients and dedication to quality are the cornerstones of our business. Our delicious raviolis, broadly satisfying tortellini/tortelloni and uniquely nutritious sauces will satisfy the sociable chef in you. We carefully select only the finest ingredients which meet our exacting all-natural principles, in the preparation of every Monterey Gourmet Foods item. Which is why we were awarded the 2011 Food and Beverage Executive Innovation award for pasta!
