Our Story

What We Do

Since 1963, Acme Food Sales, Inc. has evolved from a small Northwest trading company to an international import, sales and marketing company. We are a full-service importer and distributor with extensive experience sourcing quality foods from across the globe. We are familiar with the intricacies of international trade, from meeting our government’s regulations to ensuring our suppliers are capable of producing products that exceed those criteria and finding products that exceed our customers’ expectations.

Acme Food Sales has established superior relationships with our suppliers, regularly visiting plants overseas to assure the consistent supply of our quality products. We have a rigorous Quality Control Department that QC’s all product received. Additionally, the size of our company allows us to respond quickly to our customer needs and provide the best value available.
