Prospective Sellers

CUESA’s policy is to give preference to producers and vendors whose practices support our mission to cultivate a sustainable food system. For producers, all products must be grown in California, and we give preference to those who farm organically. For vendors, we prefer those who use organic, regionally grown produce, and who have at least two years’ experience in the restaurant/prepared food business. All prepared food is subject to a blind tasting to assure product quality and appeal. We do not accept unsolicited samples.

While we would love to chat with all prospective vendors individually, the high volume of interest forms we receive and our regular work load does not always allow for this. Thank you for taking the time to give us information about your business and we wish you the best in all your endeavors.
