HLB SPECIALTIES

Sweetening the World Since 1989 has been our motto since the company was founded by Brazilian Homero Levy de Barros in Germany more than 30 years ago. Over the past three decades, we’ve proudly shared our love of high-quality fresh, nutritious, and delicious exotic fruits with wholesalers, retailers, and individual customers. We supply close to 10 countries across Europe, the United States, and Canada from our headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and our European sister company, HLB Tropical Food in Kelsterbach (Germany), as well as our warehousing locations in California, Florida, Texas, Toronto, and Vancouver.  


YOU are the reason we’re here. As a second-generation family-owned company, we are keenly focused on cultivating strong, long-term relationships with our clients, growers, and teams. Delicious, nutritious, high-quality produce is our specialty and bringing these gems to you is our priority.

How may we sweeten your day today?

An easy rambutan opening hack, demonstrated by producewithpamela at the Global Produce & Floral Show this past weekend. Just give it a gentle bite to open the outer shell, then pop the round, white fruit in your mouth and eat around the seed. So easy! 🥰
