About Columbus
Since their start in 1917 making authentic Italian salami in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood, to the present day, their mission has always remained the same: To provide the freshest and highest quality foods possible. When their founders started the Columbus Salame Company, their plan was simple. They used recipes that had been in the family for generations, only the freshest ingredients, and lots of hard work.

Columbus still applies those same principles to their business today. They’re still privately owned and operated, and stand behind their products and services with great pride. It is these principles that have guided them as they’ve grown their manufacturing and distribution businesses. Columbus distributes more than 6,000 high quality grocery items to grocery stores and restaurants up and down the west coast.
