WORDS OF WISDOM: “If you’re creating sales, you’re creating profits. If you’re creating profits, you’re creating jobs.”
“We have different shops and different entrepreneurs who come to us with ideas,” says Raymond Rastelli Jr., president and owner of Rastelli Foods Group. “We take that idea, mold that into a product that we think we can manufacture, bring to commerce and be effective at selling.” At the same time, “our research and development team and our culinary teams are continually creating new, exciting, innovative products, so that we are looked at as a leader in innovation in our industry,” Rastelli adds. Rastelli Foods Group’s reputation also has given the company a platform to talk about the area where it is located. “We think we’ve brought a lot of PR to the South Jersey/Philadelphia area,” says Rastelli.
