Corsiglia is a family business that was founded in 1896. The founder, Giovanni Battista Rafetto opened the first store selling Marrons Glacés in New York City.

There, he introduced the production of these glazed candied chesnuts in France. Since then, Corsiglia has been run by six generations of family members who continue to maintain the artisanal process of making premium fruit products.
