The principles we live by
What it means to be the Belazu Ingredient Company
The Belazu Ingredient Company was founded on strong principles and we have lived our lives by them. Here they are, in a nutshell.
The Ingredient is King
People say ‘the customer is king’ (we do too, and we mean it)… but we are also all about the ingredients. We know what a difference great ingredients make – ingredient is king, and everything we do supports that.
First name terms only
We know everyone we work with personally, and in most cases have done for a very long time. From the longstanding relationships we have with our suppliers and the bespoke services we offer chefs, to the attention we give retailers – we are a one-to-one kind of business.
We follow the sun
We love to source our authentic raw materials from the riches of the Mediterranean terroir, because of the near-perfect conditions of the soil, climate, air, and sun. Combined with minimal interference in nature, the best ingredients are produced.
We bring the best together
From high quality suppliers, to customers, understanding and appreciating our ingredients means we can see the alchemy between them and we are always on the lookout for fresh combinations. This fusion of great ingredients, expertise and taste buds tuned to the Mediterranean can result in something quite special.
The journey matters
Our goal is to get as close as we can to bringing the taste and experience of the ingredient at its source to your kitchen. So everything about the field to fork process matters to us, and we do all we can to make sure we retain as much as possible of the beauty along the way.
