What our customers say

Hear directly from our great customers!

We were amazed by the service of Global Resource Direct. We run a macaron delivery business, and after a lot of research, I came across Tom and his team. Super responsive and very nice. The prices are frankly affordable and the almond flour is of very great quality. My next order is coming soon!

- Jean C

Speedy responses!! Our manufacturing facility purchases our flours, oils, and IQF items from GRD.  Excellent service, full shipping dept, credit terms, make it easy to work with them.

It's been great working with GRD - They have been so patient, and accommodating to my needs as a small business. They have provided me with my requests of finding organic, high-quality products at prices that work for my business. Grateful to be working with them!
