Lanning's Foods

Lanning's Foods is a family business specializing in both wholesale and retail sales of fresh beef, pork, poultry, produce, and dairy. Bernard Lanning started the business in Mount Vernon in 1969. The Lanning family operated the business at a previous location until 1989.

In 1989 the Gilardi family purchased the business. Sam and Steve Gilardi bring many years of experience to the food business. The business has showed steady growth in both wholesale and retail sales over the past 28 years.

"We at Lanning's Foods are quite proud of the service we provide and of the clients we work with."

In 1999 Sam & Steve purchased ground two miles closer to Mount Vernon and broke ground for the existing facility at 1033 Newark Road. Our new modern facility is USDA inspected which allows us to offer many new items that we could not provide at the previous facility.

Throughout the years many things have changed at Lanning's, but the primary objective has never changed: we strive for customer satisfaction through strong dedication to quality, listening to the customer's wants and needs, and providing the very best products and services available. As Steve and Sam continue their "hands on" approach, they continually strive to find ways to more effectively support a very diverse customer base.
