From a small Sicilian village to your dinner table.

Our story starts back in the 1800s in Italy, when Guiseppe Uddo — just nine years old at the time — began selling olives and cheese from a horse-drawn cart in Sicilian villages. He eventually immigrated to America and quickly set up an importing business to bring his favorite flavors to his new home in New Orleans.

Through the decades, his business grew into a warehouse, a small grocery store and eventually a factory that produced America’s first authentically Italian canned foods.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Progresso became known for its remarkable soups, with the classic slogan, “Make it Progresso or Make it Yourself.”

Progresso joined General Mills in 1969 and has continued to deliver homestyle soups and Italian ingredients to families across the nation.
