Our Story

Simple. Delicious. Gianelli.

Keeping It Real Since 1946.


Lou and Gary Davis started the G & L Davis Meat Company in 1946 at a plant on the Northside of¬†Syracuse. They began by purchasing veal calves at regional auctions and shipping the animals back to the plant for processing. Soon G & L Davis Meat Co. expanded into pork processing and using a recipe from Italy’s Tuscany Region, began manufacturing our Gianelli brand Sausage.

Today, 71 years later, Gianelli Sausage, with its original recipe, continues to maintain the consistent high quality and freshness that Gianelli is known for. The manufacturing process of Gianelli Sausage combines the traditions of Old-World sausage making with the latest technological advances in the industry. The result is a product line that is proudly produced in our state of the art facility located in North Syracuse, New York and shipped to grocery stores across the Northeast and Mid Atlantic.

It’s quite simple really… It’s wholesome food with great ingredients. G & L Davis Meat Co. as a manufacturer continues to maintain the highest standards in quality and freshness. This is our standard for every product we produce. More simply put… You trust our family to feed yours. We begin everyday knowing that we must earn that trust, everyday.

Thank you for making Gianelli Brand Sausage products a part of your family meal.
