Thank you so much for providing the food services for our 2012 Super Summer Kick-Off event at Riverfront Park. The support provided by you, and all of the staff at the Diamond Commissary Group, was greatly appreciated. The food you supplied ensured that the event was a great success and made a lot of children and their families very happy. Corey Booker, Mayor, Newark,NJ

WE START WITH THE FINEST INGREDIENTS AND FINISH WITH THE GRATITUDE OF OUR CLIENTS
onthemenu Diamond is where “What’s On The Menu” matters. While the sheer size and scope of our 70,000 sq. foot state of the art, USDA approved facility is impressive in it’s own right, it’s nowhere near as impressive as the team of culinary professionals that staff it, or for that matter the 1000+ plus menu items we’re capable of producing there. As we’re able to go about 3 weeks in terms of item rotation, our selections aren’t just fresh ingredients wise, they’re also fresh presentation wise. Regardless if you’re a vendor or wholesaler, when you’re dealing with Diamond, you can say goodbye to the gripes about “same old same old” menus —unless of course we’re asked to repeat one of our many “greatest hits”. Because at Diamond we’re not just about keeping it fresh…we’re also about keeping it real.
yes,we’vegotit! While receiving the coveted USDA Seal of Approval is a major statement about our impeccable standards, we feel it’s only part of what makes us the best choice for your foodservice needs. Why? Because what also impresses our clients is our commitment to “better”. That’s “better” as in what happens when you use the freshest ingredients—the kind of ingredients that enhance the flavors and textures of our menu items rather than mask them… That’s also “better” as in what happens when your commitment to nutrition is every bit as real as your commitment to customer satisfaction. We go that extra mile to ensure our items will keep our clients happy—and healthy. From watching sodium and fat content to creating items from “scratch” instead of using “ready made” preservative laden products, we want you to feel good about our products—even after you’re done enjoying them. Because at Diamond, the only thing that matters more than USDA approval is your approval.
U.S. Department of Agriculture APPROVED!
School Food Services Our School Food Services Team specializes in creating outstanding menus for schools & educational environments throughout the tri-state area. Aside from adhering to the USDA’s nutritional requirements, these menus—which are developed together with the school, are designed to be both healthful & delicious. This means smoother meal times not to mention more satisfied students and staff.
Government Programs Our food service department prepares well over 100,000 meals a day for state and municipal facilities. More than a provider we’re a partner in helping these facilities meet the unique challenges they face on a daily basis.
atyourservice Fact is, we didn’t become the tri-state area’s foodservice leader overnight, it took decades of focus and commitment. In many cases, we grew with our clients—and thanks to their positive “word of mouth”, because of them as well. Our signature combination of knowledge and “hands on” experience enables us to create customized “portfolios” with menu options for virtually any type of client. More than just versatility, our commitment to excellence also helps improve morale and productivity. When people enjoy the food they’re being served, they feel more appreciated as well as more positive and productive. Will enjoying this level of quality affect your bottom line? Not at all! At Diamond excellence & quality are never “line items” they’re always included regardless of budget. In short, no matter if you’re ordering a dozen gourmet dinners for a board meeting, or one of the 40,000, portion sealed, 2 or 5 pound trays we produce weekly, you’ll also be getting a superior ‘eating experience” that won’t consume your budget in the process. If you’re tired of foodservice vendors that have you eating your heart out with excuses instead of excellence, it’s time you gave us a call. We’re Diamond and we’re at your service.
