San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2012
Food production in the US has become so industrialized that many of us have no connection to the producers or production methods. With a mission to highlight small independent food producers, Petit Amuse is a new online store that promotes sales of artisanal treats through a monthly tasting box.
The company name is based on the French term, amuse bouche, which refers to an off-menu one-bite appetizer specially prepared by the chef. Similar to how an amuse bouche excites the palate, Petit Amuse aims to surprise and captivate its audience with new and crave-worthy treats. All products are hand-picked based on taste and company values.
At $10/month including shipping, the sample box is not only a fun way to try new foods but is also affordable. Many of these products are either not available nationwide or can only be purchased in bulk directly from the producer. Petit Amuse’s online marketplace makes it easy to order these treats with no minimum purchase and $7.99 flat rate shipping.
Most importantly, Petit Amuse strives to create a real connection between the producers and consumers through in-depth producer videos and Q&As specifically created for Petit Amuse. It is this connection that will help support small producers and sustain artisan food production.

Petit Amuse was founded by Ben Appenzeller (CEO) and Rosemary Ku, both graduates of Columbia Business School and long-time supporters of the independent food industry.
