Caribbean Food Delights (CFD), is one of the largest Caribbean frozen food manufacturers and the largest producer of Jamaican Style Patties: beef, chicken and vegetable. The company which began its operations in 1978 on Dyre Avenue in the Bronx, from humble beginnings, has seen staggering growth over the years. The 103,000 square foot manufacturing facility, which now sits on a 10 acre property in Tappan, NY, has seen its patty output jump significantly from a few hundred per day in 1978 to 65,000 per hour in present day. This record breaking growth has propelled CFD to first place among Jamaican frozen-food manufacturers globally.
Privately owned and operated by Jamaican-Chinese business leader and philanthropist, Vincent HoSang and his wife, Jeanette since its inception, the company remains rooted in its motto, “Quality is Our Priority.” This obsession with quality and safety has earned the company the coveted Safe Quality Food Institute’s highest achievement award – SQF Level 3. CFD boasts numerous other distinctions, awards and accolades from prestigious local and international organizations.
Although best known for its flagship Jamaican patties, the company recently introduced a line of puff pastries including a revolutionary hand-held pot pie, which has found its way into mainstream markets. Produced under the Sabrina’s Delights brand, these uniquely designed half-moon shaped, flaky pastry turnovers are filled with chunky delicious meats, vegetables and gravy in the case of the pot pies. Other flavors are: Three Cheese, Chicken Parmesan, Apple Cinnamon, Mango, Guava, Peach Cobbler and Plantain Tarts. Some of CFD’s leading retailers are Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, BJ’s, Costco, Price Rite, HEB, Publix Supermarket, Winn Dixie, Harris Teeter and Commissaries worldwide.
With a staff complement of over 100, CFD is substantially larger now and is more focused on its mission to implementing strategic initiatives in distribution: making all products available and accessible to consumers nationwide. All this, while simultaneously remaining resolute in manufacturing products of the best quality and safety standards.
