This site is designed specifically to service our wholesale and food service customers, our distributors, and our brokers. We provide a product catalog, including product information, photography, and pricing. Please note: this is not a consumer web site.


We sell direct to Wholesale, Food Service, and Restaurant Trade accounts. We ship worldwide. 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 The Butcher Block, The Perfect Pantry and more wonderful partners and friends.


We are passionate about exceptional gourmet creations crafted with quality ingredients, small-batch production, and local sourcing. Elevate your store and customer's senses and redefine gourmet excellence with our comprehensive lines of all-natural gourmet selections.

Our passion is quality ingredients made in the most amazing gourmet fashion possible. We produce our foods in small batches, and we focus on sourcing our ingredients locally. 

While most manufacturers make foods under a single brand, Golden West Specialty Foods manufactures over twenty in-house brands. This allows you, the retailer, distributor, restaurants and specialty foods grocer the ability to source 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 wholesale two case minimum per order. No minimum for food service sizes and bulk items.

The least expensive shipping method will be determined based on the order configuration, generally either UPS Ground or LTL (Less Than Truckload = palletized).

We offer both and FOB and a Delivered Price List.

We also offer FREE SHIPPING on all wholesale orders of our retail-size items of over $1,000, and 50% OFF FREIGHT on orders over $500.

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!

As noted above, we offer a 50% discount on orders of over $500 and free freight on orders of $1000.00 for our retail-packed orders. Being in the business of shipping heavy, delicate and low value items for over 20 years, we know how to ship and save!


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 Tuareg 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 (+1-415-657-0123) for full details.


If our products arrive to you and you or your customers aren't 100% satisfied, we will replace the item or issue you a store credit for the full amount.


Because we receive hundreds of sample requests, while we don't charge for full-size samples, we do charge for the shipping costs of the samples. We refund 100% of all freight charges for the samples with your first order.
