The Carib Story

It’s not often a company gets to spend decades doing what it loves, but that’s how our story begins. We’re a premier food distribution company servicing the English-speaking Diaspora in the United States, and we’ve been doing it for 33 years. Throughout our history, we’ve devoted ourselves to helping grocery stores, food markets, and other retailers find new and interesting products to fill their shelves and draw in customers.

From our humble beginnings importing popular Jamaican foods into the United States, we’ve grown to distribute hundreds of products, representing an array of ethnicities and cuisines. We’ve also developed our own line of genuine Caribbean products that enjoy immense popularity. We service the continental United States and it’s territories.

We conform to all United States FDA protocols and guidelines from receiving to delivery of goods. All of our suppliers must be registered with the FDA and must keep their licenses current. We take food safety very seriously and design all of our manufacturing and distribution facilities with the highest purity, hygiene, and security standards.

In short, we produce the highest quality products possible for the rest of the world to enjoy.

Satisfying Natives and Newcomers Alike

Our brands enjoy instant name recognition among Caribbean expatriates and others that draw strength from their cultural heritage. These are the foods they grew up with. Many have fond memories of Pepperpot bubbling happily on the stove and family meals around a plate of Stewed Red Beans with Pork Tail & Dumplings over White Rice.

Our mission is to bring these experiences back to those that appreciate them while also making them available to new consumers in the U.S. and beyond. The same-old, same-old is boring. Consumers want new culinary adventures, and we help food retailers make that dream a reality.

We provide the ingredients, seasonings, sauces, snack foods, and beverages that bring spice to life. You provide the market to connect customers with the dining experiences they crave. Your customers make the memories that bring them back for more.

We’re a Proud Part of the ABIL Family

In 2019, Carib was purchased by Associated Brands Industries Limited, the leading manufacturer and distributor of snack foods, chocolate confectionery, cookies, and breakfast cereals in the Caribbean. The purchase helped expand our reach and opened up whole new opportunities.

ABIL is known for premium mass-market food products that easily compete on quality and taste with more prominent American brands. In many cases, independent, blind taste tests have found that ABIL products are preferred over their American counterparts. We’re immensely excited to see where this partnership takes ABIL and Carib in the future.
