Island Natural was one of our very first distributors.  That was about 1982.  We’ve been working & growing together harmoniously ever since!

Bob MacLeod co-founder Kiss My Face

Island Natural is a long-standing partner that has been with us from our early years and been able to grow with us along the way.  An independent natural distributor, they think outside the box and pursue opportunities beyond their comfort zone.  They are responsive and nimble. They are always open to new products and unique ideas and like to share their best practices with the manufacturer to assure success.  Paul Burstyn is loyal, honest, and straightforward, and a pleasure to work with.

Daniel Lubetzky, CEO & Founder, KIND Healthy Snacks

As a Specialty Retailer we have unique challenges and needs. Island Natural has always been there for me to help me with my business needs. There isn’t some ridiculous bureaucracy when it comes to Island Natural, it’s just simple common sense business—which is what I love most about them! Paul and his team go out of their way to accommodate our needs; be it new products that we want to test out or quick turn around on deliveries! I will continue to do business with them for many years to come

Dino E. Lopez GNC Regional Sales Director NYC

I have been working with Island Natural for over 20 years and they have always been a reliable partner with great service and a strong product mix.  The sales force treats you like family while never trying to push sales over doing what is best for the customer.

Dominick Costello - Former President Ricky’s NYC

Island Natural is always a pleasure to deal with! Great salespeople visit our store weekly, review deals and new products and work with each buyer in our store. The lines of communication are always open, via phone or email and we always get a call or email back within a day. I wish all of our local distributors were as easy to deal with!

Island Natural is a tried and true business partner.  In the 20+ years that they have been selling the Lakewood Brand they have been an instrumental part in making us successful. They are great to work with and are always willing to pioneer new items.  Island is a distributor who is small enough for the personal touch but large enough to get the job done.

Tom Fuhrman - President, Lakewood Juice

I have done business with Island Natural for over 30 years; they are a unique and exceptional distributor.  Unique in their commitment to educate themselves and their customers about the brands they sell, and exceptional in their level of service.

“Island Natural has been a steadfast partner with Earth Friendly Products in the natural channel.  From the top down they have been a very responsive organization that works very well with our own sales team in developing the accounts they service. They are one of a handful of regional distributors that get it right.  It has been a respectful partnership that we are proud to be associated with.  We look forward to continuing with Island Natural in bringing our products to the New York Metro region.”

Island Natural is an excellent Tri-state area distributor.
They have their own sales force so manufacturers can
work with them, with our without an area broker.
They do a good job of introducing new companies
and expanding the sales of established ones.
