Matiz Espana is a division of Culinary Collective, a small company dedicated to supporting the preservation of traditional foods and local food systems worldwide. Matiz does this by supplying U.S. food lovers with gourmet cultural foods that are all natural, fairly sourced, and delicious!
Culinary Collective is an import and distribution company promoting traditional foods from around the world. The Collective offers a shared logistic system for small gourmet food producers who aim to preserve traditional food systems and encourage environmental responsibility. Culinary Collective was established in 1998 by Pere Selles from Catalonia, Spain and Betsy Power from Salem, Massachusetts, when the two moved to Seattle and realized that the selection of quality foods from Spain was next to nil. Since the initial boot-strapped start up, Culinary Collective has expanded to become a premier importer of gourmet cultural foods.
