In 1992 Manes Wiezel founded City Glatt with his son Tzali and son-in-law Levi Safran. What started as a small retail kosher butcher shop in Los Angeles soon grew into three stores. In addition to serving their retail clientele, City Glatt began developing a kosher wholesale distribution venture. By 1999, City Glatt became exclusively wholesale and the company re-located to a state-of-the-art 30,000 square foot facility in Downtown Los Angeles. This enabled them to realize their dream of making fine quality kosher products more accessible to the West Coast population. The company works diligently to seek out only the finest domestic and imported kosher products - setting a "gold standard" in quality and service.
In the spring of 2000, City Glatt, Inc. created the Tzali’s Food group. Through a network of wholesale distributors and brokers, the company expanded the Tzali’s "private-label" distribution both nationally and internationally in both the mainstream, ethnic and kosher markets. In July 2004 a full line of Tzali’s brand kosher frozen appetizers was launched with much success. Since then, the Tzali’s brand has continued to expand and now includes a full line of kosher canned items and other specialty products.
