Sunrise Creative Gourmet Pasta

sunrise gourmetSunrise began in 1913 in Hibbing, MN, by the Forti family. Sunrise has been delivering products from the Hibbing location to Iron Range towns like Chisholm, Eveleth, Nashwauk and Virginia since the 1930’s and overtime built a loyal customer base. Over the past five years, Sunrise has grown their presence into over 250 grocery stores throughout the upper Midwest and has been a mainstay at the Saint Paul, Minneapolis and Des Moines Farmer’s Markets.

“We’ve remained true to our initial product vision to deliver old world quality with modern convenience,” explains Tom Forti. “Our bronze-extruded pastas are made with locally sourced, high protein flour. The noodles cook in only two to four minutes, and many are infused with all natural spices or vegetables, so all that’s needed is a splash of olive oil.”
