New England's Specialty Foods
Non-Profit Marketing, Cost Reduction & Information Services for Small Producers
There's never been a complete listing of all the various small and medium specialty food producers of New England, until now. We thought it was time for one, since the way the major search engines such as Google function, you would probably never find most of them, and if you like dining on the finest artisan foods, that would be a real shame. There are more than a thousand small and medium producers listed in the Directory on this page, with more added regularly. This website is the first of eight regional websites of America's Specialty Foods. Our ultimate goal is to have all specialty food producers of the USA listed on America's Specialty Foods, for the greater good of all, as a virtual industry cluster. Several specific ideas are mentioned throughout this website.
If you know of any businesses which should added, just email it to us. There is no charge to be listed in the New England's Specialty Foods Directory. Listings are 100% FREE.

New Resources for Products & Services
This New England's Specialty Foods website also has a growing Resources Guide, with a unique assortment of all the products and services needed by small artisan food producers. A sister website, Specialty Foods Best Resources, has a more in depth approach at displaying top vendors in all categories.
One of the primary goals of New England's Specialty Foods, as well as America's Specialty Foods, is to make it easy to find high quality, reliable resources, when they are needed.
As time passes, our vision is that this Resources Guide becomes the Angie's List / AAA ratings resource of our industry. If you have any comments regarding anyone on our lists, or would like to recommend a supplier for our directories, just email us. If you'd like to rate a supplier (from A, B, C, D or F, the same as Angie's list), there is a Confidential Ratings Form on our Specialty Food's Best Resources website which you can complete for as many suppliers as you'd like. If you believe other producers would be better off knowing your experiences, either good or bad, with specific suppliers of products or services to the specialty foods trade, please take the time to document your experiences. It has worked very well for consumers using Angie's List since 1996, and can be an invaluable resource for you, as others start to rate their specialty foods business experiences. Or, if you prefer, you can just email us your ratings thoughts for a supplier in a paragraph in your own words.
