My Love for food and the 'art' of dining came natural to me growing up in Europe. I always enjoyed grocery shopping in order to look at what was new and fresh and how it was presented.
Visiting wineries with my father during our summer vacations is another memory that will stay with me forever.
During my teen years I started working at our local restaurants and took on an interest in food prepping and what goes into serving a menu to customers.
As of my early professional years I had the luxury of traveling around the globe and being able to discover cuisines and cultures.
I decided to re-direct my professional career and joined various food producers in various functions all over the world. After a few expat projects I decided to bundle my passion with my educational background together with all the business experiences acquired. over the years.
As a result, Across Foods was established in 2006 and we are not looking back!
Hopefully we can assist you and share our passion in order to make you successful.
