Our Story

Proudly serving the San Francisco Bay Area since 1930.

For close to a century, Kael Foods has been the choice distributor of eggs and dairy products for countless restaurants and bakeries in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our company was founded on a passion for supplying quality products and excellent service, and that same passion remains the key to its' success today.

We carry an all encompassing list of products that are supplied by established market leaders such as Berkeley Farms, Odwalla, Califia Farms & California Fresh Eggs. Many of our vendors are local which allows us to ensure the freshest product offerings.

Our quality products are coupled with a superior customer service. Having been in the dairy industry for numerous decades, we fully understand the fluctuating needs of our customers. Our flexibility allows us to accommodate our customers in their most critical times. Our customers show their appreciation for our efforts by sustaining the longevity of our relationships, some of which tally 40 years and counting.

A commitment to quality was at the heart of the original business plan that was crafted by founder Joseph Kael in 1930. Mr. Kael began as a one man show. He daily made his rounds in San Francisco, from door to door, delivering a dozen local farm fresh eggs at a time. As a result of a growing demand for his services, Mr. Kael expanded his business into a multi-truck, multi-person and multi-route production.

Forty-one successful years later, Mr. Kael employed current owner, Sam. In addition to delivering eggs, Sam was also tasked with gaining customers. In 1980, after nine years of mentorship, Mr. Kael entrusted Sam to continue his legacy. Soon after acquiring the business, Sam partnered up with his nephew, Issa, and more recently with his son, Mario, making it a true family affair. Being the progressive and competitive men that they are, they expanded the product list within the first five years to include milk, butter and cheese. In addition, they added more routes to serve customers in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. 

To this day, our customer base is ever growing and products are continuously added in order to meet the needs of Kael Foods’ valuable customers.
