Snuk Foods is a global bazaar of the best specialty ingredients from across the world. We’re on a mission to end the “international foods” aisle of your supermarket, because people of every background deserve the convenience of healthy, delicious ingredients delivered right to their doors.
We’ve painstakingly selected over 2,000 exceptional dry goods (rice, flours, beans, lentils, and noodles), bottled condiments (sauces, chile and curry pastes, jams and preserves), prepared foods (ready to eat foods, healthy mixes, and nuts and fruits), dried herbs and spices, artisan creations, and nostalgic favorites, ensuring you can always get the hard-to-find ingredients you’re looking for. And if you don’t know what you’re looking for? We’re here to share a world of flavor.
Great food requires a healthy respect for tradition, hard-won relationships with skilled producers, and an obsessive eye for quality. We seek out brands that have earned the trust of their communities and are innovating in exciting ways. And we’ve spent decades in search of producers with sterling reputations for healthy, high quality foods.
That’s why we’re committed to total transparency. Every Snuk Foods product page notes an product’s country of origin and clearly marks Halal food and Kosher food certification status. We also highlight foods that are certified organic, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and non-GMO*. And unlike other online retailers, we include clear images of a product’s ingredient and nutrition label information, so you can judge them for yourself.
Snuk Foods is a team of ingredient obsessives, market buyers, professional chefs, seasoned cooks, globetrotting journalists, and supply chain operatives. We have on-the-ground experience at production regions in Latin America, the Middle East, and East and Southeast Asia. In other words, we know quality when we see it.
We’re also proud to work with sourcing partners around the world, such as Kalustyan’s, the New York specialty food destination that supplies the most demanding cooks and professional chefs with over 10,000 ingredients from dozens of countries.
We believe eating and learning go hand in hand. Which is why we’ve launched Caravan, a digital magazine by Snuk Foods devoted to understanding and celebrating the foods of the world and the cultures behind them.
Caravan is an editorially independent publication run by veteran magazine editors and award-winning journalists. Expect to find in-depth profiles and interviews, clear-eyed guides to global ingredients, and dozens of recipes from leading chefs and cookbook authors. You can get Caravan stories delivered right to your inbox by signing up for our newsletter.
Snuk is the romanization of สนุก (sanook), a Thai word that translates directly as “fun,” but refers more broadly to a sense of joy and free-spiritedness celebrated in Thai culture. It’s also the name of a very good girl that one of our co-founders met on an ingredient-sourcing trip in Thailand. Curious, loyal, and raised on a diet of roast meats and tropical fruit fresh off the tree, Snuk the dog is our mascot and guiding star, a reminder that cooking, family, and joy are best intertwined.
