The “Soom Sisters” - Shelby, Jackie, and Amy - had no idea that a little known ingredient hiding in the back of their childhood pantry would eventually become their life passion. But a moist, flavorful carrot cake served by Jackie’s mother-in-law in Israel would change everything. You see, in Israel, tahini is revered for its flavor and versatility and used in everything from sauces and dips to decadent desserts. But in the United States, high quality tahini just didn’t exist. So, if the sisters were ever to taste that incredible carrot cake again without jumping on a plane, there was only one solution… to start their own tahini company! And they did. The sisters combined their skills and passions to create a business founded on a love for food, family, and community. In 2013, Soom Foods, a certified women-owned company, was born. Since then, Soom has been dedicated to bringing some of the world’s most flavorful foods to their kitchen and yours.
