Ownership and History For many years, Sedutto's ice cream was manufactured in a factory on Richmond Terrace in Port Richmond, Staten Island. This container was used as the packaging for a new ice cream product, Staten Island's Own, which was produced by Sedutto in 1994 and sold only on Staten Island. Although the Port Richmond plant closed in 1995, the Sedutto's brand still exists as of 2012.
