3 Generations, 1 Family

Over three generations, members of the Giorgi family have built a home, reputation, and brand in southeastern Pennsylvania. Through nearly a hundred years of hard work and good fortune, the Giorgi family’s multi-faceted business enterprise has grown into a vertical operation that spans high-quality mushroom growing, can production, canning and jarring, and distribution on a global scale.

The Giorgi’s story of success was born out of hardship. Their ancestors first arrived on America’s shores in the 1910s and 1920s, fleeing political strife, discrimination, and poverty at home. The United States held promise not only as a safe refuge, but also as a land of greater opportunity. Immigrant Pietro Giorgi tilled the land, laying the groundwork for their businesses. Pietro’s son, Frederick (“Fred”), trained as a lawyer and served in the U.S. Navy, but made the family’s enterprise his life’s work. Peter Giorgi continues his family’s proud line of leadership today.

The Giorgi Family Foundation (or the Foundation) was established in the spring of 2016, following the loss of patriarch Fred Giorgi. Many organizations sought and received Fred’s quiet, but always willing help over many years. This family initiative is inspired by his generous spirit. Through the Foundation’s annual gifts, Peter and the Giorgi Family strive to honor his legacy, perpetuate their family values, and have a meaningful impact in the four target areas of the Giorgi Family Foundation’s mission statement.
