SFI’s team of buyers travel the world, seeking the best selection of fruits, vegetables, seafood, condiments, grains, rices and other specialty foods that discriminating chefs demand for today’s upscale menus and broadening tastes. Only products that meet the highest standards for quality can be packed under our brand.
Suppliers must adhere to strict guidelines for product specifications and a zero tolerance for disruptions in our supply chain. Regularly scheduled facility visits by SFI personnel further ensure that our Company’s needs are being met.
In addition, our purchasing department spends a significant amount of time understanding the market nuances of each product purchased and the global crop and supply fluctuations affecting those products. This knowledge keeps our customers informed of changes well in advance of their occurrence, providing the critical time needed to plan for contingencies.
