This site is designed specifically to service our wholesale and food service customers. We provide a product catalog, including product information, photography, and pricing. Ordering functionality is for the convenience of our retailers. Please note: this is not a consumer web site, and consumer orders will not be filled from this catalog.



We sell direct to Wholesale, Food Service, and Restaurant Trade accounts. All shipments must be to a commercial address. Clients are welcome to place orders for 'will call', and pick orders up at our warehouse.

We also work with national and regional distribution houses and DSDs.

Consumers looking to place an order online are encouraged to go to our retail internet partner, HonestFoods.com or any one of a number any other internet retailers who carry our lines including Black Tie Mercantile, Amazon.com, Dean & Deluca, The Perfect Pantry and more.



While most manufacturers make foods under a single brand, Golden West Specialty Foods manufactures over twenty in-house brands. This allows the retailer, distributor, restaurants and specialty foods grocer the ability to get over 120 different items in over twenty brands from one source.

For our clients, having such a wide selection cuts down on freight and paperwork, and allows them to order according to their specific needs.



For retail sizes, there is a two case minimum per order. No minimum for food service sizes and bulk items.

All orders are shipped under Prepaid and Add Freight Terms. The least expensive shipping method will be determined based on the order configuration, generally either UPS Ground or LTL. Shipping costs will then be added.

We ship the least expensive way possible, generally with LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers or UPS Ground for smaller orders. The manner with which we ship depends on the order configuration (weight and destination.)

Please call us if you need to know the freight charges prior to us shipping: (415) 657-0123 or toll-free (800) 584-4481.

RUSH SHIPPING is available. We will confirm with you rush order shipping charges ahead of time. Please note in the COMMENTS section your expectations regarding shipping times.



We offer seasonal and volume discounts for distributors, end-caps, and other promotions. Please inquire!

Enjoy substantial shipping savings! We offer a 50% discount on orders of over $500 and free freight on orders of $1000.00. This applies to our retail items only, not our food service items. Being in the business of shipping heavy, delicate and low value items for over 20 years, we know how to ship!



We are experienced in export. With facilities on both coasts, both the European and Pacific markets are within our reach. We can ship to all countries in FPL (Full Pallet Loads) or FCL (Full Container Loads) according to our client's wishes. Our Export Officers will be happy to assist you.

Our in-house sales staff is fluent in English, Spanish and French. We also speak a smattering of Swiss-German, Hochdeutsch, Italian, and Hausa, a language spoken by our West African customers. Our Export Officers are fluent in French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Cantonese, Mandarin, and several other languages.

Most importantly, we speak the language of export.

We currently export to Canada, Mexico, England, France, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Japan, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Indonesia.

Please contact our Export Department via email or telephone (+415-657-0123) for full details.
