La Regina Atlantica, a U.S. subsidiary of Italian producer of homemade pasta sauces La Regina di San Marzano, will source carrots, peppers, basil, onions, and meats from farmers locally.

The company’s freshly grown tomatoes will be imported from Italy through the Port of Savannah, where they will then be transported to Alma to be processed into the brand’s world-famous sauces.

Headquartered in San Marzano, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, Italy, La Regina di San Marzano is a canned-peeled tomato and sauce manufacturing facility that has been operating for 40 years following three elements: passion, tradition, and family. The company opened their Manhattan-based subsidiary La Regina di San Marzano USA in 2013.

La Regina Atlantica is purchasing an existing 226,000-square-foot building, located at 135 Industrial Drive in Alma, Georgia. This facility will become its first U.S. processing location and bring more than 250 jobs to southeast Georgia, including opportunities in advanced manufacturing, management, logistics, procurement, and quality assurance.
