Specialty Foods

What is a specialty food?

Specialty foods are edible goods that are made with unique and high-quality ingredients in small quantities such as honey, jellies and jams, mustard, baking mixes, sauces and granola. All Idaho Preferred specialty food products are made with Idaho-grown ingredients. When you choose Idaho Preferred specialty products you are supporting local businesses and Idaho farmers!

Because Idaho is rich in agriculture, we have an impressive variety of specialty foods containing locally sourced ingredients. There are some unique products like Idaho sturgeon caviar and on-the-go meals like Fit Wrapz. Specialty foods also make great gifts as most have a long shelf life and are easy to add into customized baskets. Learn more about local gifts here.
