Authentic Quality Products

Arrezzio works with the best producers in Italy and the U.S. to create full-flavor products for Sysco customers, using the time-honored production processes of the Old World. Arrezzio Classic Pasta is an imported dried pasta, made in Italy from 100% durum (semolina) wheat. It is perfect for Italian restaurants—and any kind of operation—that would like to promote the authenticity of their ingredients.

Arrezzio’s high-performing Pasta La Bella, also made from 100% durum (semolina) wheat, is domestically produced by one single supplier, which provides for high levels of transparency and quality control. Known for its consistency of texture and color, this is a great choice for any restaurant across the board that is looking for an excellent and reliable product.

Another standout item, Arrezzio Riserva Mozzarella is an all-natural cheese that uses no anticaking agent, so it is perfect for gourmet and artisanal pizzas. The mozzarella is made by a single supplier in California, which ensures quality and consistency year-round.

Three Tiers of Flavor

The Arrezzio brand covers products as diverse as tomato sauce, prosciutto, anchovies and basil pesto—the building blocks of Italian cuisine. The brand is divided into three tiers: Arrezzio Classic, Arrezzio Imperial and Arrezzio Riserva. Arrezzio Classic products—which include a variety of meats, cheeses and tomato sauces as well as imported pasta—are distinguished by their excellent value. Arrezzio Imperial products offer premium performance and exceptional value. And items under the Riserva name have unique formulations, using the highest-quality ingredients.

I see a lot of mixing of genres these days, such as Japanese–Italian fusion. Don’t be afraid to try out bold combinations.

Mix It Up!

Although many Arrezzio products call out for use in traditional Italian applications, “a lot of these items can swap into other kinds of cuisine,” says Alfredo Guido, Sysco’s Director of Italian Sales. “I see a lot of mixing of genres these days, such as Japanese–Italian fusion. Don’t be afraid to try out bold combinations.” Many chefs, for example, consider Arrezzio Imperial Pesto to be one of the most versatile ingredients in their repertoire, whether they are pairing it with roasted potatoes or topping a shrimp salad for a quick lunch special.

Not only are Arrezzio products made with the highest quality standards, but they also are backed by Sysco’s unprecedented supply chain management and delivery reliability. This means your order comes with the confidence of a carefully monitored producer network and the largest quality assurance team in the industry.
