Another Great Testimonial


“My experience with the California Garlic Company team and their products has been such a great experience. I work for a culinary consulting company and we move rapidly from project to project. So to have a sample team like California Garlic Company providing us with great tasting products and fast and efficient sample shipment, is invaluable. Some of our requests have been for very tight deadlines and they have been so helpful in getting the product we needed on the timeline that we required. For product developers like us, they are such a great ingredient partner to have. They also inform us about new product innovations of theirs that help both of our companies in the long run when introducing these products to our clients.”
