About Us

ZAS International was established in 1986 by company founder Ziyad(Zee) Al-Hajj Sulyman. Started from a small office in Orinda California as a trading and marketing company for food products, ZAS International’s trading and export presence now spans across the globe from the USA, South and Central America, Africa, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and everywhere in between. While California is our home we have representative offices in Brazil, Costa Rica, S. Korea, Malaysia, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia.

Today our extensive global network of partners and distributors market ZAS product under our proprietary brands such as Chef West, Xotix, Wellington’s, and Bon Vivant as well as through the hundreds of Private Labels we represent. Products are shipped worldwide directly from member suppliers and factories in the USA and abroad. In addition to retail and food service items we also handle a variety of raw materials, packaging, machinery, and other equipment related to the food industry.

We are proud to be associated with all ZAS principals and customers and are always dedicated to servicing the food industry with the highest levels of integrity, service, and professionalism. Our 26 years of a rock solid reputation is the best proof of that!
