Franco-American brand Soups and Pasta
The Franco-American Food Company was founded by Alphonse Biardot who came to the U.S. in 1880. He and his two sons opened a commercial kitchen in Jersey City, New Jersey. They achieved so much success that Campbell’s bought them out in 1915.
Over the next two decades, their name was phased out
of their soup products, then in the late 1990s on their pasta products. Today, the only products that still retain the Franco-American name is a gravy line (beef, chicken and turkey).
