When Kat and David first met, they discovered their shared passions for two things above all else: travel and food. Back from their trips, they’d swap stories about the most memorable meals they experienced abroad. They’d fantasize about recreating their favorite dishes at home in the US. But amidst this reverie, they grew frustrated with the limited availability of the foods they had discovered abroad upon their return home to the US.
Thus was born Try The World: a ticket to the foods and cultures of the world delivered to your doorstep. It would be the perfect way to experience the world through food without boarding a plane—or paying for the ticket.
We believe that life is worth celebrating. A new taste, a new city, a new culture - every new discovery enriches our lives. By making it easy to discover products made by artisans around the world, we hope to bring the people of the world closer.
We believe that everyone should have access to quality foods at affordable prices. Thousands of food producers around the world make authentic products, but by the time their products arrive to the United States after passing through several middlemen they are 4 times the original price.
Try The World works directly with middle-size producers, streamlining import and domestic logistics. Our products ship by boat with minimal environmental impact - making tasty, interesting food accessible and affordable to everyone. We are proud to have introduced 5 million great products from more than 30 countries to hundreds of thousands of American customers.
