About Us.

The Pinski-Portugal & Associates

Pinski-Portugal & Associates proudly celebrates fifty four years of exceptional service and an unrivaled array of award winning specialty food products. Our portfolio of local, domestic and international products provides wide ranging diversity that is vital to meeting the varying needs of our discerning customers. Cutting edge and innovative, our supplier partners are category leaders with exceptional quality and imaginative presentations to match.

Founded in 1963 by Eugene D. Pinski out of a passion for confections, Eugene’s daughter and partner Lynn Portugal built this tiny intimate company into a full-fledge, full service fine foods brokerage. It continues to flourish to become today one of the most awarded and recognized specialty food brokers in the region.

Our headquarters at suite 322 in the LA Mart in Los Angeles, California, and we serve the Pacific Southwest as well as Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. We proudly cater to brick and mortar retail, restauranteurs, caterers, catalog and gift shops, and our reach continues to expand as the industry evolves. Each region has an account representative whom will tend to their specific needs, as well we have full coverage via telecom and personal visits to our LA Mart Showroom which are available upon request.

Pinski-Portugal & Associates is an active member of the NASFT. We frequent gift and specialty food shows in most major western markets, and are constantly searching for the newest trend-setting products. Our enthusiasm and passion fuel the persistent drive to identify and cultivate unique quality brands that will continue to elevate our finrs and deliver profits to our clientele.

Our company was built and continues to thrive based on honesty, dedication and perseverance, and our professional and ethical family of representatives deliver unrivaled service. Customer satisfaction is paramount to our mutual success, and rather than being the biggest, our goal is to be the best. The absolute commitment to our clients is our strength, and we ensure complete satisfaction. We are happy to provide additional information on any items contained in this website, and cordially invite you to arrange a visit to our showroom for a more in-depth view of all the amazing products that we have to offer.
