Prior to 1980 James Russo worked for his father at an Italian Cheese company in his hometown of Campbell, N.Y. It was there where James had his first experiences with the Italian Food industry in many aspects like transportation, production, and distribution. After those years James decided to go in his own direction and take a chance with the distribution side of the “Pizza Supply” business. In January of 1980 James went to Buffalo with a small truck and made his first purchase of Sorrento Cheese and hit the streets of Steuben County. While doing this as a one man show he was able to build a foundation for future generations in the Russo family. By the early 90’s Southern Tier Provisions was full speed ahead with the help of James’ wife and children. It was in the 1990’s that Southern Tier Provisions was identified as “The Pizza People”. After a very busy decade the millennium came to put Southern Tier Provisions into its third decade with more products and services. By the year 2000 we began to haul outside freight for other food companies and manufacturers throughout NY, PA, and NJ. A cash and carry store resides at our main office along with a printing and graphics division. Today we operate several trucks to service our Pizza Shop accounts as well as deliver freight for all of our transportation customers.

“The Pizza People” defines our part of the pizza supply business. We handle the finest pizza products money can buy. Our success has not been based on having the cheapest products but, our products are based on quality in value. It has always been our feeling to give the customer something that is better than the rest. We search many companies in order to find the highest quality products at an affordable price. Names like Anthony’s Choice, Stanislaus Foods, Sorrento, Pollio, Ezzo, Morton Salt, Burke, Yancey Fancy, Pastosa, and Deiorio’s represent our high regard for quality in value. While Pizza supplies are our main focus we have expanded into other areas. We are a fully insured and permitted LTL carrier for frozen, refrigerated, and dry food products. Southern Tier Provisions is also a proud Morton Salt Certified Master Distributor for industrial, water softener, and food grade salts. We put our focus on satisfying any and all of our customers no matter how big or small they are. Quality and service are what put Southern Tier Provisions here today and it will insure our future for tomorrow.
