This is Haile Resources

Since it was founded as a one man business in 1982, Haile Resources has grown and responded to a changing marketplace to become one of the leading Food and Beverage Ingredients suppliers in the Southwest. Owner and President Howard Haile came from a long line of entrepreneurs. It was through working for his father Frank, who specialized in designing and installing bulk sugar and flour systems, that Howard developed the desire to run a company of his own. A noted world traveler as well, it was on a vacation trip to Japan that Howard met his future wife and business partner Debbie. This strategic partnership, both in business and personal life, created the backbone of Haile Resources and effectively launched its success into the 21st century.

Haile Resources maintains its market position by fully qualifying each of its vendors. We want to insure that our suppliers are reliable and well suited to support your ingredient needs. Haile Resources also strives to create true business partnerships with our customers by providing innovative ideas, trend analysis, technical expertise and creative supply solutions. In addition, Haile Resources consistently provides world class customer service designed to exceed our customers’ expectations. So give us a call and let us help you realize your future success.
