Expert wholesaler specializing in importing and distributing
fine foods and beverages to retailers across the nation
The experience of our owners and operating officers in the food industry goes back to the early 2000s. After being a part and operating several different companies, LEA Foods was brought into existence in 2014 as a business run exclusively by a family. ‘LEA’ stands for 3 names of the family members: Leo, Enna, and Alex. Leo and Enna, both have experience in business management, accounting, sales and client relations which they have received in universities back in Russia and Ukraine, their countries of origin. Their European background allowed them to kick off the company serving ethnic and international markets at first, by understanding the needs of immigrants in Chicago and surrounding states. With time and help of the son, Alex, the company slowly expanded its distribution all around the nation and transitioned into offering various American and European products for the mainstream market while keeping its ethnic customer base. Alex started incorporating into the business world first while studying business management in DePaul University in Chicago and became fully involved in the company’s operations upon completing his bachelor’s degree.
Throughout the years mission of the company has always remained the same: to provide our customers with the best products from Europe and to bring back taste of ‘homeland’.
