Philosophy

Food Material is more than just an importer of food and wine from Spain. It stands for a way of life. We represent the purest natural products, without industrial processes. Each of the products continues a long tradition, in some cases even centuries old, and each evokes emotions. Some you haven’t felt before. We want your human side to experience something: laughter, feelings of joy, love. We want to redefine the limits and leave everything mainstream behind and also inspire those who want such an experience.

Our fascination with gastronomy and culture leads us to believe that a healthier, more sustainable, and better life is possible. A life in which like-minded people meet to enjoy togetherness over a meal, because we are what we eat at the end of the day. This is the basis of our motivation and passion for exceptional products.

The Concept

Carlos Rodríguez-Santamarta is the heart and soul of Food Material.

His passion is to tell stories about the diverse, great flavors, and pleasures of the Mediterranean and the different regions of Spain.

From natural wine to homemade cheeses and Iberico sausages, Carlos has been inspired by local craftsmanship, many of which friendship and kinship is the key bond. All products at Food Material are sourced directly from the winemakers and farmers that he personally selects and tastes on site and in limited quantities. Their attention to detail, to the terroir and to their unique products, also reflects the philosophy of Food Material.
