Four Generations....One Promise....Quality......

In regards to the family---taste and quality ingredients are absolutely king. Our products contain NO nitrates or preservatives of any kind----and we make everything the same way we have been since the early 1900's. These products contain almost no fat because we use the best and leanest cuts of meat. Our dry-cured products are Aged like a fine wine. When you taste a Bressi product, you will be tasting a product that has been aged to perfection in an ideal climate and humidity. Patience is the key to success--in the entire year our products are made in the course of a few very select weeks. Everything has to be perfect for the curing process--however--the results and quality of our products will astound even the most senior lovers of fine food.

Our Story: The year was 1901, and the Trojan Prince passenger ship sailed in to beutiful and legendary Ellis Island. After months on board, Antonio Esposito Bressi emerged from the ships hull to be greeted by New York city and a sight of the statue of liberty. He had temporarily left his wife and children in his hometown of Isca Sullo Ionio (Catanzaro, Calabria Italy) to get settled in their new home.

After working in the blast mines of central PA to pay his ships fair, the entire family came to America. From that point on, his sites were set on the creation of Bressi's Market in Kulpmont, PA. The journey was a long one, and it took quite some time until the needed funds were collected. But at last---after patience and an iron will---the construction began and the dream became a reality. This market would build upon the tastes and cultures of the people of Calabria, and later, the people of Europe in general.

If the store could speak it would have a lot to say----it has seen multiple wars, the depression, man landing on the moon, the iron curtain and it's collapse, the tearing down of the Berlin wall, the atomic bomb, countless presidents and a host of other historical events. Yes---the history is rich---just like the flavor of our legendary aged meats and ethnic products. Come to Bressi's in order to taste a slice of history!
