When I set out to create Zibari, I had a mission to explore the world and seek out the finest-crafted foods cultivated–then make them available to chefs, restaurants, stores, and foodies everywhere.
My serious pursuit to discover exceptional and unique culinary finds, and the resulting travels, paved the road to the rich experience of diverse flavors and subtle differences. I scouted out small and family-run growers with extraordinary and delightful foods full of character and conscience, the result of sustainable farming practices, traditional production techniques, and commitment to quality. A difference you can taste.
Each time I crossed the globe to a new destination, I did so (and still do!) with only one purpose in mind: to experience the authentic ingredients, flavors, aromas, and textures of local culinary cultures and regional cuisines.
To Italy, France, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Spain, Greece, and Peru, my wanderlust led me to my grand affair with the delighting tastes and artisanal care that go into the history and heritage of the highest quality food making its way onto our tables.
I am happy to report that my passion and an insatiable desire for fine food, reverence for the people who produce it, and the places it comes from, is behind the philosophy and diverse selection of Zibari.
We are proud to be recognized for bringing the wonderful, varied offerings of the world’s best epicurean tastes to excite and enthrall. With Zibari, you are never too far from an amazing food experience and an invitation to Taste the World.

Meet our CEO and co-founder, Ariela
When I am asked about my childhood memories, I remember the smell of food the best. I was born and raised in Mexico City.
As a little girl, I remember helping my mother plan the food menus when she had friends or family over dinner. And every Sunday, I went to my grandmother’s house before lunch to help her cook.
Those childhood experiences had a tremendous impact on me: nowadays, I am always taking charge of ordering food every time I go to a restaurant with my friends.
I have a B.A. in International Business from Universidad Iberoamericana and a master’s degree in Food Studies at NYU. With over eight years in the food industry, I decided to continue my journey as an entrepreneur. In 2020 I Co-Founded Zibari.
