Greece, N.Y. – All week long, 13WHAM has been taking a look at manufacturing in our area as part of our “Made in Our Hometown” series.
Friday, we got a look inside LiDestri Food and Drink. We spent the morning at their Greece location, learning about their sauces, dips and beverages.
More than 2.5 billion products are produced by LiDestri every day for more than 20 million people around the world.
They have partnerships with companies like Newman’s Own and Wegmans – and also produce their own lines, such as Francisco Rinaldi and spirits.
“Year after year, we just keep growing in the Rochester community – but we’ve expanded beyond that, too,” said Co-President Stefani LiDestri, “but we’ve expanded beyond that, too. We’re in Fresno, California now, and as of next year we’ll be up to about 1,300 employees.”
The company has been in Rochester for more than 40 years, with plans to open another location here – bringing their local number of plants to four.
