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.

Grown in Mexico year-round, HLB Specialties’ white guavas have a sweet and tangy flavor. They are rich in vitamin C and fiber and considered a digestive aid and immune booster. Ready to eat when the skin is yellow. 
GUAVAS ARE A GREAT SNACKING FRUIT: Just rinse and eat them bite by bite or cut in quarters for younger children. Just watch for the hard seeds and be careful not to bite down too hard! Best to swallow seeds whole or strain them when juicing. 
ENJOY GUAVAS IN A TROPICAL FRUIT JUICE! Rinse, cut, and blend with water and ice. Add your preferred sweetener as needed. Strain the juice and enjoy!
