// About Us

Quality Food Purveyors
born in the grasslands
of La Habana.

With roots dating back to the early 20th century, Quirch Foods is a family on a quest for the best quality foods available. We are importers, exporters, and distributors of food products to the retail and food service trade.

Quirch Foods was founded in 1967 as E&G Trading by Guillermo Quirch Sr. and his two sons, Eduardo and Guillermo Jr. The Quirch family’s involvement in the food industry dates back to the early 20th century when Guillermo Sr. managed a meat packing and distribution company in Havana, Cuba. Forced into exile by the revolution of 1959, the family founded a meat distribution company, Oriente Comercial, in Puerto Rico, and then E&G Trading in Miami, Florida.

Our company is family owned and directed by the third generation of the Quirch family, and is a certified Minority Business Enterprise. We are one of the largest distributors of food products in the Southeastern U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean, with a customer list that includes independent and chain supermarkets, food service distributors, processors and manufacturers, cruise lines, and restaurants. In 2014, we extended our reach to the Midwest, opening Quirch Foods Chicago Division, in Chicago, IL.

In 2014, Hispanic Business Magazine ranked us in the top 10 Hispanic businesses in the U.S., by measure of revenue. We are also ranked as one of the largest among the top 50 exporters in the U.S.

What began as a small family outfit with five employees has become a major wholesale distributor with 5 distribution centers in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and over 500 employees.

OUR PASSION
YOUR JOY

For generations, we’ve worked with our heritage on our side.
We were born in the tropical grasslands of Habana.
Standing tall we rebuilt in the land of the free.
We believe you only live fully  when you love what you do.
We are driven by a win/win philosophy.
A philosophy of human interaction our grandfather stitched into our culture. We are always on a quest for what is real.
A quest driven by passion.
Our passion for connecting people through the magic of taste.

As purveyors of food, the curation of fine meats runs in our blood.
We champion the hardworking spirit
and those people who
act to take life on.
Win/win is a frame of mind and heart that looks for mutual respect.
We know our success relies on our customers’ success.

“Life’s most memorable moments happen around food,”
Don Guillermo used to say.
Today we serve those who embrace the power of food as he once did.
The power of food to bridge cultures,
bring human stories to life and bring joy to people’s lives.

We will always respect authenticity,
hard work and the independent spirit.

We are Quirch.
