Each and every day at HIC, Harold Import Co., we aim to bring you the best in wholesale cooking suppliesessential cooking tools, and food preparation equipment, all at the most affordable of prices. This has been our mission since our founding in 1957, and it is at the heart of our third generation family-owned and operated business. 


Because HIC has been importing wholesale cooking supplies for decades, our experience has taught us that quality, value, and superior customer service never go out of style.

Our first product was a white porcelain dinnerware plate and, half a century later this coupe dinnerware plate is still one of our most popular items. We were also the first company to produce the American dinner-sized plate in Japan.


Today, we carry over 3,500 home and commercial kitchen supplies from our own brands, exclusive brands, and leading brands from 25 countries. HIC products are available in over 10,000 retail outlets worldwide, so our kitchenware supplies are only a short drive or a click away.
