Antonio S. Fonseca and Dianne Fonseca have been active owners in Packaging & More since its inception in 1993. Lifelong Rhode Islanders, the Fonsecas met in 1968 while working together at Big G Supermarkets. While Dianne went on to teach high school Spanish and Italian, Tony pursued a career in the grocery industry, eventually leaving the retail side in the mid 1980s and joining Roger Williams Foods, a grocery wholesaler in Lincoln, RI. After successfully commencing the packaging division at Roger Williams, a series of acquisitions and mergers left Tony thirsting to run his own operation. In 1993, he gambled that with his local connections and a growing need for a Southern New England based packaging distributor, Packaging & More would thrive in and around the Providence area. He was right.

Married in 1971, the Fonsecas have lived in Smithfield, Rhode Island since 1975. Tony was born and raised less than a mile from Packaging & More’s current location. He is a veteran of the United States Navy and the Vietnam War. Since 2005, both of Tony and Dianne’s sons, Tony and Vincent, have been with the company full time.
