Imported products come directly from the manufacturer to our warehouse in Hamilton, so there is no middle-man. Le Gastronome prides itself on offering the most cost-effective solution to our customers without compromising on quality. All our products are transported from Europe in refrigerated containers, and sensitive products like wine, cider, beer, chocolate and oils are stored at an ideal temperature within a controlled environment in our warehouse in order to guarantee the best quality for our clients.
We supply high quality, genuine products made with natural ingredients, many of which are free of gluten and dairy ingredients. We also carry a large range of organic and bio-dynamic products that have been certified as using sustainable methods of harvesting or farming. The suppliers selected to work with Le Gastronome are mainly artisan producers who take pride in their products which are produced with passion and generations of experience behind them. We distribute well known brands that are leaders in their fields as well as select artisan products to speciality shops and fine food establishments. Many of our products are used by caterers, food manufacturers or chefs to enhance their recipes.
