Our beginning was humble, we started our customer line with only three products: canned peaches, canned fruit cocktails and canned corn. These products sold initially in Asia and soon after, entered the Middle East market. We recognized early on that in order to become a leader in that market we needed to innovate and provide the consumer with quality products. From our first shipment, we have stayed true to our philosophy of providing a superior product at a reasonable price.
This same philosophy carries through to all of our products which now include over 200 items packed in over 20 countries around the world.
One of our main products is fava beans: we have created 10 recipes and sauces to fit the taste of the local countries that we serve. We have Egyptian recipe, Lebanese recipe, Saudi recipe just to name a few. Each of these are packed in easy open cans and are ready to eat: just heat and eat.
We are always working to introduce new products to the marketplace. So look for new products from California Garden in your local store, and if for some reason your store does not carry it, ask the store manager and we are sure they will accommodate your request. You are always welcome to contact us and we will advise you of the nearest store that carries our product line.
Our main factory in the Middle East is Gulf Food Industries - California Garden, a joint venture partnership with Kuwait Food Company. It was built in 1990 and it is perhaps the most modern facility in the Middle East. We process and can all types of beans. Our most popular bean is Fava. We pack fava beans in many sauces to fit the local taste in the Middle East. We also manufacture our own cans with white lacquer in order to give the best flavor and keep the cans rust free.
We have a fantastic line of Fruit juice drinks with a little something extra. Each has pieces of fruit mixed in so that its almost as if you are "eating" your drink!
