Our Story

photo (2)A bit about us…

Passion Purveyors® was born in 2007 out of a need to help foodservice create less waste.

We are a foodservice distribution company that serves the tri-county areas of  Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito Counties.

A bit about Lovely Foods…

Our new Lovely Foods division was developed to highlight and distribute perfect foods that are created by passionate folks who have your health in mind.

Passion Purveyors® distributes these fabulous food items to local restaurants, cafes, catering companies, churches, schools, independent grocery stores – anywhere that serves carefully prepared foods.

We hope you enjoy these wonderfully created foods as much as we do!

A bit about Green Goods…

Green Goods is how we began – and thanks to all of you who keep us going!

Our foodservice packaging is one-of-a-kind and will help create a dining experience that has an inherent balance between function and our environment.

We hope you enjoy our passion for bringing you the best Green Goods we can find!


“Food is a universal language; there is no one on Earth not affected by it in some way.
Whether you’re a producer, distributor, or a consumer, we all have our role to play.

It’s what we choose to do with that role that will determine the future of food and the environment.”

— Carolyn Swanson, founding owner of Passion Purveyors, LLC
