From allspice to ziti, our products are defined by five primary attributes:
We always source the best ingredients. For instance, we use only true Indian Malabar Black Pepper since it is simply the best. We'd rather spend a few cents more to get the best than compromise on quality.
We work hard to keep it fresh. We don't overbuy and always source from the most recent crop.
Our products are manufactured in small batches. These are handmade by experienced artisans who pay attention to every detail.
We try to be ahead of the curve by focusing on emerging food trends. We feature a large selection of whole grains which are rapidly growing in popularity. Condiments from North Africa like Harissa or Preserved Lemons were largely unknown just a few years ago. Now they are commonplace ingredients in many kitchens. The same is true for recent additions to our line such as Israeli Cous Cous, Dulce De Leche and Achiote Paste.
Fresh Ginger Puree, Roast Garlic Puree and Caramelized Onion Puree are convenient time and labor savers that can help lower costs without compromising quality.
Our fresh pasta program is really like no other. Small batch artisan production combined with unique seasonal offerings set us apart.
Value is a function of quality and price, and we have a well-earned reputation for always offering top quality at competitive prices. It's that simple. By offering many items in small sizes and individual units, we make it convenient to buy only what you really need; your inventory doesn't sit around aging and tying up precious cash flow.
We have worked hard to establish a reputation for excellent service. We have a fleet of refrigerated delivery vans, and we strive for dependability and reliability. Our seasoned customer service staff can help with ordering by giving you a reminder call. Our warehouse is well-stocked, and we take pride in the fact that we rarely run out of items.
We believe that one can be successful in business while still being a responsible steward of the earth. Therefore we try to use sustainable business practices like using 100% renewable energy; recycling paper, plastics and food wastes; and using corn based (PLA) food trays. We also support sustainable agriculture and build community by establishing long-term relationships with local producers.
