our history

FachadaNWS_cielo nuevo[1]_edited_edited.jpg

Northwestern Selecta was founded in 1980 by the Núñez family in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We are a family-owned company dedicated to importing and distributing frozen and refrigerated foods to retailers and the food service industry.

Based on our strong service focus we have grown to become one of the leading food distributors in Puerto Rico and one of the largest Hispanic companies in the United States.

Here at Northwestern Selecta we remain focused on improving and perfecting our processes to continue offering quality service to all our clients.

Currently, Northwestern Selecta’s growth is in the hands of the 3rd generation of the Núñez family, who are committed to offering the same service and quality values that have characterized us from the beginning.

Northwestern Selecta, three generations of commitment  to excellence.


"Northwestern Selecta
is a result of
hard work, strong family values,
a consistent commitment
to excellence."

- Elpidio Núñez III
