Sandy Hill Investors, the private equity arm of the Bruderman Family Office, has made a minority investment in Seviroli Foods Inc. and Vertullo Imports LLC.

Seviroli is based in Long Island and produces a range of filled pastas, sauces and Italian desserts, as well as other products. Vertullo is an importer that sources food products from around the globe. Sandy Hill’s stake, together with a majority investment from Mill Point Capital, looks to create a partnership to help the company through its next stage of growth. Joe Seviroli and Paul Vertullo will continue to operate the companies and have a significant ownership stake in the new partnership. Sandy Hill will have a seat on the board of directors of the new combined company.

“We are excited about our partnership with Sandy Hill and Mill Point as we look to the company’s next stage of growth,” says Joseph Seviroli Jr., CEO of Seviroli Foods. “We believe this partnership will add significant value as we continue to build on our family’s legacy.”
