We've spent most of our lives in Rio de Janeiro, a city rich in sports, music, beautiful nature and delicious food. We also lived in Recife, a place with unique food and happiness, plenty of music, art and dance. Zing Bowl was founded in July 2016 as a compilation of some of the great things we've learned. We believe that our diverse cultural experience, combined with our solid business management skills, will help us in finding the best Brazilian foods that can fit the American life style and palate.
Bringing premium food from Brazil, making them popular in the U.S.A., and improving processes for the Food Service business are our top priorities.
We are committed to sourcing organic and sustainable products that will contribute to a better world. Therefore, we choose suppliers that produce organic and sustainable products, respecting the environment and the community that surrounds them.
