Providing the Food Service Industry for Decades
The largest part of our business has always been based on the wholesale market. We first started purveying restaurants with our Despaña Traditional Chorizo and not long after that we began to incorporate other Spanish specialty products, such as Manchego cheese, jamón, piquillo peppers, turron, and olive oils. As we began to establish our own retail stores, we started curating our selection of products to service high end retail food boutiques with our imported specialties to fill that specific niche that was still underserved in those years.
Nowadays our client base is large and spread out throughout the United States including Puerto Rico. We have developed steady relationships with our customers by listening to their opinions and sourcing certain products from Spain based on their needs. A close and personalized attention to each client is the key element to our continued growth plan.
