All of our products are made in the US Virgin Islands
Our business is currently located on Water Island, a tiny island in the middle of Charlotte Amalie harbor St Thomas. The island is home to about 150 residents and three other business' besides our own, a Deli, food wagon, and beach bar. We service all three with our products. Fish Jerky and a cold beer what could be better.
Caribbean Specialty Foods also services the three other Virgin Islands: St Thomas, St John, St Croix, We have accounts stateside and international.
It all started in the year 2000... Doug made Rachael some of his "Fish Jerky"... She loved it so much she said "lets start our own business as 'specialty food manufacturers' " After extensive research and development, it was decided that "Fish Jerky" was viable to release to the market.
In October of 2002 Rachael Niblock and Floyd Douglas Ackley created a partnership called Caribbean Dried Foods; with the intentions of launching a line of specialty food products from Fish Jerky to dried fruits and vegetables, all handmade with the best ingredients. We have now further diversified and decided that "Caribbean Specialty Foods" would make a more appropriate name.
Caribbean Specialty Foods is now making pepper sauce, hot oils and soon barbecue sauces, and many more delicious treats as well. As long as Doug keeps thinking up new tasty products, Rachael will keep taste testing them, and if they pass the test, then you'll see them on the shelf soon!
Caribbean Specialty Foods' products are all handmade in small batches and every batch is tasted for perfection before we package it for you. Our ingredients for both the Scotch Bonnet Pepper sauce, Hot Sesame Oil and the flavoring sauces for the fish jerky, are all hand selected from the freshest fruits and vegetables available locally. Nearly all the deep-water gamefish we use for our fish jerky is locally caught in VI waters and reaches our kitchen fresh.
Doug and Rachael even go fishing themselves sometimes, but they don't usually catch anything!
Caribbean Specialty Foods will continue making products in small batches and from the best ingredients available. We will continue to make specialty food that is healthy, and we will maintain that certain sophistication that goes along with producing healthy food. That is our mission.
Rachael and Doug will continue to expand and innovate. Changing consumer needs and tastes necessitates this bringing of new and healthy products to the market place. Using a technique that is thousands of years old (drying food, thereby preserving it for stability and portability) we combine new technology and vacuum sealing for extended shelf life and quality. In this manner Caribbean Specialty Foods is unique and an innovator in this type of packaging and preparation.
The succes of our company will continue to be based on the close attention to detail, and "hands on" management.
