Blake is proud to create value for Carolina Ingredients and each and every customer.
Blake grew up in Huntington Beach, CA and moved to the Carolina’s in October 2015. He enjoys southern hospitality as well as unique food flavors from the Southeastern Region. Graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies from Cal State Fullerton (Go Titans!), plus an Associates in the same field with a focus in leadership, Blake brings a unique food perspective having spent numerous years in the grocery and restaurant Industries before becoming a member of the Carolina Ingredients Team. Blake grew up tasting all sorts of flavors from his diverse family eating. (His heritage includes the Phillipines, Mexico, Japan, Russia, Ireland and Israel descent allowing him to relish in cuisine from all around the world.) He is proud to create continuous value for each Carolina Ingredient partner, and looks forward to assisting in any way he can.
It’s hard to pick one core culture, as each of the 7 founding cultures are what makes Carolina Ingredients extraordinary. However, I take a special liking to the first culture: Passionate about creating value. Here at Carolina Ingredients, we separate ourselves as exceptional because of the value we create for each and every customer! From the mouthwateringly innovative seasonings we produce, to the service we pride ourselves on, we are passionate about creating continuous value!
When I’m not travelling to a new place, or trying new tastes, I can be found weightlifting, partaking in sports or spending time with friends and family!
Favorite Seasoning Blend
The best thing about Carolina Ingredients is that we endlessly introduce new flavors. My favorite blend changes each time I try something different. Then again, I highly recommend trying the Apple & Toasted Cinnamon! It’s a blend that works on all sorts of foods, but I favor it most on popcorn or pita chips. It has just the right amount of sweetness, with a great balance of warm cinnamon too! My taste buds tingle just thinking about it.
