"For a small to medium-size firm to make it to 50 years, in today’s day and age of big conglomerates, is a major accomplish­ment," says Louis Ballarino, of the Dairy Maid Ravioli Company in Gravesend that he owns with his brother, Salvatore,

The company, which celebrated its landmark anniversary on Oct. 11, 2003, produces fine pasta products such as manicotti, stuffed shells, tortellini and cavatelli.

To pair with the pasta, Dairy Maid sells containers of marinara, meat, Alfredo, calamari and scungilli sauces. And to keep up with changing customer demand, the Ballarinos have added lobster, asparagus and portobello mushroom ravioli to their standard meat and cheese offerings.

Dairy Maid products are sold in John’s Meat Market, 2667 Coney Island Ave. at Avenue X in Sheepshead Bay, (718) 743-5770; and G & S Salumeria and Pork Store, 2611 Avenue U between 26th and 27th streets in Midwood, (718) 646-9111. The company also maintains a well-stocked retail store in front of the plant for local shoppers in need of a carbo fix.

Dairy Maid Ravioli Company (216 Ave. U between West Fifth and Van Sicklen streets) accepts cash only. The store is open Tuesday through Saturday, 8 am to 6 pm. For further information, call (718) 449-2620 or visit their Web site at www.dairymaidravioli.com.
