MEET OUR FOUNDERS

Luxury, refined.

What defines modern luxury? Quality or heritage? We believe it’s both.

A balance of experience and excellence, Calia is the combination of visions lead by our co-founders for the pursuit of perfection for the modern gastronomist. 

At the heart of the brand, we believe that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. 

We have captured the quintessence of nature’s nest in our selection of products, to delight even the most conscientious of palates.
