Alma Engine Limited is a small business dedicated to importing and distributing beautiful Latin American food and beverages. Curious name you may say, but here is why:
Alma: is soul in Spanish
Engine: is the motor that drives you
Alma Engine: Fuel your engine, love your soul
Indeed, our drive is to provide an exciting new range of quality foods and specialties and share it with foodies in New Zealand, so our philosophy is to source goods that are not only good for you, but also that whenever possible align with social and environmentally responsible practices.
Latin food doesn’t necessarily mean spicy, it is rather full of flavour, made with exotic yet natural fresh ingredients and these combinations we guarantee will rock your socks off! Our team, half Latin half Kiwi, know a thing or two about the truly beautiful flavours of Latin America. In addition to that we endeavour to make connections directly with producers at origin and we are proud to help them support good causes such as social projects within their communities.
With the steady increase in interest on natural, heathy specialty foods, we bring to New Zealand the option to try some of the best from ‘the garden of the world’ Latin America. We kindly invite you to explore our delicious range of products from selected specialties stores, and very soon you will also be able to buy it online through our website almaengine.co.nz. Beautiful cappuccino spreads, banana jams, plantain and fruit chips, even Spirit of Ecuador delicious liqueur will be waiting for you.
