// About Us

Quality Food Purveyors
born in the grasslands
of La Habana.

a family of companies 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. By 1997, Quirch Foods was born, and established its headquarters in Miami.

Today, we are one of the largest distributors of food products in the 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. Quirch Foods owns a portfolio of proprietary brands and offers domestic and international logistics, cold chain, marketing support, as well as, state-of-the-art technological solutions to its customers.

In May of 2020, continuing the company’s quest to expand, Quirch Foods acquired Tennessee based distributor Butts Foods, an industry leader in fresh protein distribution since 1935. Butts Foods has built a proven track record over the years and today operates 4 distribution facilities throughout Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. This was the first acquisition for Quirch Foods which exemplifies the company’s commitment to further expanding its reach.

 In October of 2020, – Quirch Foods acquired CBBC Holdings, Inc. d/b/a Colorado Boxed Beef, a protein distributor and solutions provider offering products and services to ethnic grocers and food service distributors. The move further expanded the company’s geographic footprint throughout the US. The move further demonstrates the Quirch’s commitment to become the leading U.S. distributor and exporter of protein and ethnic food products. In addition to broadening its core domestic U.S. retail business, the transaction has increased the company’s ability to service the foodservice distributor channel. Quirch now has more than 22 distribution centers nationwide, approximately 1,700 employees, and more than $3 billion in annual sales. Quirch Foods delivers quality service to its more than 10,000 customers globally. What began as a small family outfit with a few employees has become a major wholesale food distribution network in the U.S., the Caribbean and Latin America.

Quirch Foods is committed to Doing Well By Doing Good™ through continuous improvement in its ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) initiatives. In 2020, the company launched a CEO-led executive steering committee to define and oversee plans to achieve a long-term, strategic, and data-driven goals to address a range of social and environmental issues and build customer and consumer trust. Quirch Foods’s specific ESG initiatives include:

  • Active participation in roundtable discussions of supply chains with National Fisheries Institute® (NFI) and Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs), and formation of relationships with other leading global groups committed to regulating, preserving and improving global sourcing. • Active participation in roundtable discussions of supply chains with National Fisheries Institute® (NFI) and Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs), and formation of relationships with other leading global groups committed to regulating, preserving and improving global sourcing. 
  • Increasing to 98% the proportion of Farm-Raised seafood sourced from Better Aquaculture Practices (BAP)-certified fisheries. 
  • Working with manufacturers to convert retail packaging to recyclable materials to reduce waste.  Quirch Foods intends to package over 90% of all its brands in eco-conscious packaging by 2028.

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 that you only live fully when you love what you do.
We are driven by a win/win philosophy.
A philosophy of human interaction that 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 fuels our success and commitment.

As purveyors of food, the curation of fine meats runs in our blood.
We champion a 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.
