The Victorio Brand
The Victorio brand name began in 1937 as a single product designed to make Pasta Sauce from homegrown tomatoes for the Home Gardener/Canners; it was soon discovered that it also made smooth Apple Sauce and the Victorio Food Strainer became a must have item for every Home canning enthusiast. Check out the historic newspaper advertisement from 1937 below.
