About Us

In Arabic, ‘kama’ refers to a rare and precious desert truffle. Not only are kama truffles difficult to find –every spring, Bedouins scour vast expanses of desert looking for telltale cracks in the ground that foreshadow the riches beneath – but their ability to grow depends on the amount of lightning that accompanies the previous winter’s storms. It takes a flash of serendipity and a well-trained eye to uncover these wonderful treasures.

At Kama, we seek out the rare, prized delights of Middle Eastern cuisine, scouring the Levant region for the most exceptional foods and flavors. With a flash of serendipity and a few well-trained palates, we serve up the most delicious and authentic local food products to customers across the globe.

Food.

At our core, we are deeply passionate about great food. Food is life – in the most literal sense – but it’s also a labor of love. We love natural, wholesome ingredients cultivated by local farmers and producers who share our commitment to quality. In addition to working with local farmers, we seek to empower local women and support local communities: most of our products are lovingly prepared and handcrafted by women working out of their own homes. At the end of the day, our goal is simple: we want to share delicious, authentic flavors of Middle Eastern cuisine with customers around the world.

Culture.

Of course, our products reveal more than just the diverse flavors of Middle Eastern cuisine: they tell stories of people, places, and traditions, spanning back countless generations. The heritage of the region is interwoven with fragrant spices and decadent dishes, and by sharing these wonderful tastes with the world, we hope to remind people – both inside and outside the Middle East – of the way food unites us all.

Design.

At the end of the day, great design is our first love. We believe that food should look as great as it tastes, and that beautiful packaging and meticulous attention to detail are essential components of high-quality products. And it’s about more than just looking good: exquisite product design should be functional, practical, and purposeful. And, ultimately, it should put the products front and center. With our clean, well-considered, and simple-yet-intricate ethos, we aim to do just that.
