In 1978, a woman named Edwina started a small baklava business in her Fresno, CA, kitchen. It was so popular that in the coming years, she had to move to increasingly larger production facilities just to meet demand. But even then, she never dreamed that 40 years later Sinbad Foods would become the largest specialty baklava producer in North America. Today Sinbad Foods continues to proudly create classic Mediterranean treats in our SQF Level 3 production facility in Madera, CA – still in the heart of California’s Central Valley and just 30 minutes from where it all started in Edwina’s kitchen.
The years have seen us add both sweet and savory creations, all while using old-world recipes for authentic, exotic tastes. From our delectable baklava to our other sinfully delicious bakery treats and our delicate Mediterranean specialties, all of our items have one crucial thing in common: they are handmade with fresh, high-quality ingredients by a dedicated and experienced team that takes great pride in sharing our recipes with you.
When it comes to sourcing those fresh, quality ingredients, we are committed to supporting our local economy by actively working with local suppliers whenever possible. All of our nuts, honey, eggs, and dairy products arrive wholesome and fresh, often from farms and ranches that are also our neighbors.
Take a bite of our mouth-watering food and set off on a journey to a time and place where the air is thick with the perfume of Mediterranean spices, roasting nuts, and honey; where artisan bakers combine wholesome ingredients to create hand-crafted pastries that intrigue, delight, and satisfy. Welcome to Sinbad Foods.
