About Ragu

In 1914, Assunta Cantisano left Italy from the port of Naples, bound for America with little more than her family’s pasta sauce recipe to her name. Assunta and Giovanni stayed true to their Italian upbringing and put down their roots – literally. Their own backyard garden would ultimately inspire their fresh tomato sauce and delicious meals, planting the humble beginnings of RAGÚ.
In 1937, Giovanni and Assunta set out to support their family and began selling homemade tomato sauce right from their front porch. By 1946, the Cantisanos outgrew their kitchen and opened the first RAGÚ factory in Rochester, NY to better meet the demands for their delicious combination of vine-ripened tomatoes and flavorful herbs.

The company grew, and so did their commitment to the highest standards of quality for every single batch of fresh tomato sauce. The iconic gondola was added to RAGÚ packaging in the 1950’s as the brand continued to grow. RAGÚ sauce quickly became a centerpiece on family dinner tables across the United States. An Italian tradition turned American classic, this sauce was simmering from coast-to-coast as a staple in some of America’s most popular recipes.
Perfecting our Classic Alfredo recipe, RAGÚ packaged and sold the first nationally distributed white sauce in 1998. With the introduction of RAGÚ Homestyle Sauces, we crafted a thicker, heartier experience that serves as an ode to our family tradition and makes the perfect topping for yours.

For our 80th anniversary, we’re celebrating a legacy of bringing authentic flavors to the table. And with heartier RAGÚ Homestyle Sauces, the tradition continues.

Our Thoughts

Pasta sauce is a staple in our house. My oldest son is the world’s pickiest eater, but he will always eat spaghetti. With Ragu, I know that he is getting quality sauce, that is filled with vegetables. He doesn’t eat vegetables, so I like that I can sneak them into his pasta sauce without him knowing..haha.
Ragu Homestyle sauce is a nice, chunky sauce. It has a great homemade flavor to it, and that really sets it apart from the other sauces. The sauce is thick, so it doesn’t run all over the plate, making a soupy mess. The flavor is out of this world, and has this richness to it that I’ve not tasted in any other store purchased sauces.
My whole family noticed the difference as soon as we sat down to eat. I love that I can grab something nutritious and filling, and know that I’m feeding my family well. These sauces work great for those busy nights, or for the pasta loving family!
