It all began with a vision to deliver the freshest dairy products on-time at a fair price, as well as provide a wholesome product everyone would trust.
The Troia family has a tradition in gourmet food products beginning half way around the world, and dating back to the early 1900’s. John Troia’s grandfather, Ignazio Troia, provided for his young family by transporting artisan cheeses, olive oils, and locally grown produce on a horse drawn wagon from Palermo Sicily back to the small fishing villages where he would sell to the local vendors and patrons.
Ignazio and his four sons opened Troia’s Market in 1947, after the Troia family left Sicily and immigrated to Monterey. One of the four sons, Frank (John’s father), soon left the grocery business to make his mark in the local dairy industry. Frank mentored his own sons in the old world traditions, stressing a strong work ethic and customer service.
Following family tradition, John and Pamela Troia opened Troia Dairy Distributing in January of 2001. Pamela’s background in sales and logistics rounded out John’s local roots and traditional family legacy. Troia Dairy Distributing's product lines and customers quickly began to grow and it only seemed natural to expand and become Troia Foods. Our commitment to innovation, local sourcing, and customer service makes us an industry leader.
Troia Foods looks forward to providing your business with our growing line of fresh, high-quality products and professional service.
