Stefano Faita Tomato Basil, Marinara, Arrabbiata, Rosée and Alfredo sauces are now available across Canada
Canada’s favourite Italian-Montrealer, Stefano Faita, is back in the kitchen and expanding the availability of his premium pasta sauces now at Sobeys Inc. As of late October, the brand’s Tomato Basil, Marinara, Arrabbiata, Rosée and Alfredo sauces are available coast to coast at Sobeys, Safeway, Thrifty Foods, Foodland and Farm Boy.
Born from the desire to bring authentic Italian tomato sauces to Canadian grocery stores, Stefano Faita sauces are proudly prepared in Canada with tomatoes sourced from the Striano region of Italy, near Naples. Along with his business partner, Chef Michele Forgione, Faita developed the line of sauces based on family recipes handed down through generations, with careful attention to detail using natural ingredients with no added preservatives, sugar or water to create delicious products that are completely gluten-free.
“I grew up in the kitchen with my mom and grandmothers, learning to appreciate not only the food we created but the time we spent together and the care it takes to cook for the people you love,” says Stefano Faita, Chef, restaurateur, and co-founder of The Stefano Faita Brand. “I want to help other Canadians experience that too, which inspired me to introduce this line of sauces featuring authentic, high-quality ingredients.”
Five chef-driven sauces now available from coast to coast

Stefano Faita Rosée Sauce – This is the Stefano version of the classic rosée pasta sauce; a crowd-pleaser for all ages, including kids.

“With the introduction of these five sauces nationally, we’re setting the table for things to come,” continues Faita. “In Montreal, we also have available a wide range of soups, cured meats, pastas, meatballs, additional sauces and more. We’re looking forward to being a small part of some of the special moments that take place during mealtime in kitchens across Canada as we continue to expand our distribution.”
