NEW BEDFORD, MA – Sid Wainer & Son is excited to announce the launch of West Coast operations, an expansion that will bring a handpicked selection of products from the finest farms and producers in the world to the West Coast. This new operation will support foodservice and retail clients.

Sid Wainer & Son’s range of specialty items will offer access to unique, innovative, and superior quality items for both chefs and home cooks. From specialty cheeses and charcuterie to a vast collection of spices, condiments and other pantry items, the Wainer family has a long history of searching the globe for the finest items. These will now be available to our newest market.

Jamie Wainer, 4th generation family member and Director of New Business Development for Sid Wainer & Son, will be heading up this expansion.

 ”This is an exciting step for our family and the Sid Wainer & Son organization. We are eager to share our products and passion for food to this new market. We have the knowledge, recipes and unique ingredients that today’s consumers are looking for in their marketplaces” says Jamie.  “Sid Wainer & Son’s salesroom is filled with chefs and former industry professionals; making them great resources for culinary knowledge. Today’s retail customers are really much more than home cooks – they are foodies and home chefs,” continues Wainer, “and we know the trends and ingredients they want. We have products that people can’t get anywhere else.  Everything in our brand has been approved by us and is of the utmost quality.”
