Our Story

Every great idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple enough, really: time and time again, we found ourselves struggling with low quality cooking materials and ingredients. More often than not, the ingredients already available on the market were either too costly, or more trouble than they were worth.

The need for a brand of reliable, premium quality, and affordable natural and modified organic food products we could rely on for our gastronomical endeavors was becoming painfully apparent - and that's the how and why of creating Cape Crystal. We're a modern, 21st century company with a singular goal in mind: we want to provide our amateur cook and professional chef customers with a wide range of natural and organic premium quality ingredients - without charging our customers an arm and a leg!

We're aware, however, that "just" providing top-notch quality products is not going to cut it - not in today's fiercely demanding world. Everything evolves, and so must we; that's why, unlike many of our competitors, we pride ourselves in pushing the boundaries of modernist cooking and molecular gastronomy, constantly introducing new products and ingredients for our customers to create with!

And we're glad to be able to say that all that attention to detail and quality actually pays off! We already enjoy a growing portfolio of satisfied customers, which bears testimony to what our customers are always looking for - quality, value and reliability.

Of course, this only drives us to strive to become even better, because what's of utmost importance to us is our customers' total satisfaction. After all, it's what keeps us in business!
