Castella Imports: A Company Like No Other
For over two decades, Castella has been servicing the evolving needs of the specialty food industry. With roots firmly planted in foodservice, Castella’s increasing presence on grocery shelves and leadership in Mediterranean bars across the country is a testament to this growth. Family is at the heart of this business - the ideals of two generations, from father to son, have merged to create a specialty food company unlike any other. While upholding the traditional standards of quality and value, Castella is committed to continue evolving by focusing on innovation and sustainability.
Castella partners with the world’s best growers to ensure our commitment to quality, freshness and variety in our wide-ranging product offering. Exceeding industry standards, Castella’s facility is SQF Level 3 Certified. Our on-site Quality Assurance laboratory team tests and certifies quality of goods from inbound inspections to production, all the way through to the finished product.
Through diligent product sourcing, in-house manufacturing and distribution, Castella’s vertically integrated supply chain is uniquely capable of delivering top quality products at exceptional value. A Castella owned and operated fleet of trucks allow us to offer discounted nationwide delivery. With a cutting edge tracking system, our Logistics team ensures efficient, on-time delivery to your store.
Castella’s forward-thinking in-house Marketing Department collaborates with Purchasing, Sales and R&D to keep their finger on the pulse of the specialty food industry. We pride ourselves on evolving with the needs of our customers. Through digital, print and social media marketing initiatives, brand integrity and awareness is a priority. Castella’s marketing team offers customized marketing programs and creative packaging solutions to our clients, with a green focus on utilizing sustainable inks and papers to reduce our ecological footprint. Castella has also started its move to a clean label, focusing on an organic, non-GMO, and all natural product offering.
Castella is committed to reduce our environmental footprint; our goal is to completely rely on renewable energy by 2018! We currently utilize an Energy Management System to optimize energy usage throughout the company; including HVACS, lighting, refrigeration, compressors and demand levels. Castella is also a member of the PSEG LI Program. We plan on implementing LED’s and a solar power system which will provide approximately 95% of our electrical power. Castella is also dedicated to recycling and we plan to replace all vehicles with Hybrids by the year 2018.
