Today, Bellisio markets more than 400 products spanning across a wide variety of categories, including single and multi-serve entrees, snacks, side dishes and specialty sauces. While most of Bellisio's products are branded, the company also manufactures private label and co-pack retail products and also designs items for the foodservice industry. Some of Bellisio’s brands include: Michelina’s, Michelina’s Lean Gourmet, Michelina’s Budget Gourmet, The Family Table, BUNdinos, Fusion Culinary, Arden Kitchens, Charrito’s and Howlin’ Coyote. Currently, Bellisio is working to develop a new line of premium products under the The Joy of Cooking brand.
Fusion Culinary Center, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bellisio based in Lakeville, Minnesota, conducts research and development for many national restaurant chains. Bennigan's Grill and Tavern recently named Fusion its "Vendor of the Year" for their culinary work.
Originally produced in Duluth, Minnesota, Bellisio’s products now ship from its facility in Jackson, Ohio. A number of R&D functions still operate out of Duluth, as well as the packaging and financial departments. The executive offices of Bellisio are located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
