Preserving Nature and Heritage

American Delicacy family

AD was established in 2010 by Jake Putnam a.k.a “The Onion Guy”. The company was built as a result of being exploited by constituents, today’s competition.

American Delicacy is now owned and operated by Jake and Elizabeth Putnam. The Business is based in Lansing Michigan with satellite warehousing operations throughout North America. Within a decade the company formed an alliance with several large wholesale distribution channels and grew to be a sourcing giant. Jake’s passion is working with others and pioneering emerging/trending markets. The company has been successful at cultivating several markets and works to advance worldwide supply chains. AD’s CEO J.Putnam explains: “Historically food systems have been unorganized and untrustworthy. With global demands increasing, industry leaders need contemporary and proven methods to grow their companies authentically. AD works to formulate sustainable supply chain options from the source.”

“We owe our prosperity to God himself and Everyone we work with. We manage our company like a family.” Say’s Jake and Liz Putnam. ” The food industry can be challenging, we wouldn’t be able to succeed without the network and team we work with.” AD’s harvesting team consists of Amish, Asian, African, American, Indian, Hispanic, farmers and foragers. AD’s objective is to provide an honorable purchasing and culinary experience that highlights both Nature and Heritage.
