Amerisal Foods’ CEO Nora Saca and CFO Vanessa Faggiolly will receive the Entrepreneur Leaders of the Year Award.

Founded in 2007, Amerisal Foods is a privately-owned wholesale food distribution company, importing Latin American food products. The El Salvadoran mother-daughter business duo bought the financially struggling Amerisal Foods on the brink of foreclosure and turned it into a multi-million dollar enterprise.

The business currently employs over 500 people abroad and distributes its food products to supermarket chains like Superior, El Super, Vallarta and Super King. “We saw the huge market potential of Latin people nostalgic for ‘a little taste of home.’ There was a demand, and we filled it,” said Vanessa Faggiolly.

Amerisal is a woman-owned food distribution company specializing in Latin foods. After taking the business from bankruptcy to liquidity, they utilize the resources and teachings from ICCC to help grow their business.

Meet Vanessa Faggiolly and Nora Saca of Amerisal Foods in Van Nuys

AUGUST 7, 2017

Today we’d like to introduce you to Vanessa Faggiolly and Nora Saca.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Vanessa and Nora. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
In 2008, I decided to join my Mother in the most exciting adventure of our lives. With very little money in our pockets we offer to make payments and bought a bankrupt company.

The company had huge potential, when my Mom told me about the concept of the business I visualized the mission and vision statement. We were going to solve a pain in the market, the demand for nostalgic food products was huge and we were going to fill that gap with a new mentality, hard work, passion and drive.
