Founder, President and CEO
Nebraskaland and Omni Food Sales
Richard Romanoff is the founder of both Nebraskaland and Omni Food Sales. His family has been in the meat industry for four generations. Nebraskaland has grown to be the largest New York-based meat distributor, selling over 5 million pounds each week. Nebraskaland’s core business is to supply independent supermarkets and wholesalers in the surrounding seven states. Nebraskaland’s diverse product line includes beef, poultry, pork, seafood, veal lamb, imported meat, as well as fresh and frozen processed foods. Specialty and variety meats are among the top selling items used mostly by the diverse ethnic communities on the East Coast. Nebraskaland was ranked #68 in Crain’s 125 Top Privately Held Companies in 2011. Its continued growth is attributed to Nebraskaland’s steadfast commitment to quality and service.

A few years after the establishment of Nebraskaland, Richard realized there was a need for a protein food broker. Thus, Omni Food Sales was established. Omni Food Sales is a sales and marketing (Food Broker) agency that represents top national brands for retail sales. Omni Food Sales currently represents over $300 million in sales each year.

Nebraskaland and Omni Food Sales are the proud sponsors of many charitable organizations, including the Bronx Overall Development Corporation, Chrons & Colitis Foundation, City Harvest, Hunts Point Economic Development Corporation and Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Food Bank. Richard Romanoff personally serves on the Advisory Boards of New York Presbyterian’s Allen Hospital and as a Board Member and Vice President of the Tri-State Law Enforcement Foundation’s Honorary Deputy Commissioners. In addition, Richard is an Advisory Board Member of Samuel Gompers Vocational High School in the South Bronx.
