Healthy eating and specialty diets are an ongoing trend in the foodservice industry. Nowadays, many of your customers might be choosing these alternative diets to live a healthier lifestyle. For others, their religion or medical condition could influence their diet and keep them from eating certain foods.
When you own a restaurant or foodservice business, it’s important to be aware of the dietary needs and restrictions of your customers. At Feeser’s Food Distributors, we offer a wide variety of dietary options so your patrons can find what they’re looking for. Serving as your specialty food supplier is just another way we look out for you and your business.Learn More

Alternative diets are not just a fad. Many of your customers are trying to live healthier lifestyles. Others need special products due to a medical condition or religious beliefs.
We cater to a variety of specialty diets, including nut-free and sugar-free. If you require products or ingredients for your customers with special dietary needs, here are some of the trending diets we specialize in.
Vegetarianism is one of the most popular specialty diets, with veganism quickly gaining momentum as well. Vegetarians do not eat any kind of meat, including seafood and foods cooked using meat products. Similarly, vegans don’t eat meat products and also avoid any food that’s derived from animals, including dairy, eggs and honey.
These specialty diets consist mostly of grains, beans, and produce. All our vegetarian and vegan products are mindfully sourced and carefully labeled to ensure your customers have products they can enjoy.
Offering gluten-free food is quickly becoming a must in the foodservice industry. Those who have Chrohn’s or Celiac’s disease cannot process the gluten protein found in many types of grain such as wheat, barley and rye. A surprisingly large amount of foods include gluten, from baked goods and pasta to beer and malt. Offering gluten-free meals and products allows these customers to find food they can enjoy at your business.
Food is an essential part of daily life, and religious food laws carry a special significance for those who practice the Jewish or Islamic faiths. We strive to bring both Kosher and Halal products from reliable sources that meet the strict dietary standards of these religions.
More restaurants and food-based businesses understand the importance of offering artisanal foods. These products are usually handcrafted and sourced from local artisans. We happily connect your foodservice facility or restaurant with family farms, ranches and other producers specializing in fine, artisanal products such as meat, cheese, produce and more specialized items.
