The Alexander Foods Difference
Every product Alexander Foods imports is personally sourced by our founder, Georgios Kastanias. As a former chef, he set out to discover the highest quality foods to feed his own family, produced by the trusted agricultural families of Greece. Now he wants to bring this level of quality foods to the U.S.
Unlike large corporate distributors, we are not looking for the bare minimums in quality. We strive to exceed our customers’ expectations and our own with every new product addition. So we go to great lengths to test every product we sell.
We begin by visiting the actual farms and villages that produce our products, meeting the families who have created these products for generations. Then we regularly sample the products to continue to ensure the highest quality.
We believe you will taste the Alexander Difference.
“As a Chef working in restaurants for so many years, you realize that the easiest way may not always be the best way. I think that customers can really taste the difference between a fresh product versus something already pre-made and put on a plate. There’s no originality in re-plating a factory produced item. Our products help your restaurant’s reputation and improve customer loyalty by serving customers wholesome, healthy and quality foods.”
Why Alexander Foods
At Alexander Foods, our mission is to introduce our U.S. customers to a higher level of quality Greek foods from my homeland. As a former chef, I understand how a depth of commitment and value of hard work creates superior products. And my devotion to my family led me to search for quality, healthy and safe products for my son, Alexander.
These two concepts led me to discover the products you see here. The products we carry are made with love from the strong family producers with their own heritage of quality and hard work. They are sourced from the best geographical locations in Greece so we can present the highest quality, USDA certified organic, and award-winning products available in our olive oils, honeys, spices and even beverages.
Once you try our products imported from some of the finest family producers, I think you will understand how my commitment to quality can translate to a superior end product for your establishment.
