Baru Rubs and Sauces
Based in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Baru Rubs & Sauces is a local company whose products include a wide variety of seasoning, sauces and condiments. Run by longtime friends, Zeta Newis and Nina Lafleur, the company branched out from their popular Kitsilano neighborhood restaurant, Baru Latino.
Both Newis and Lafleur were exposed to many different types of ethnic cuisine from the time they were children. Early memories for each are closely tied to food and family gatherings; and both have an unapologetic passion for global fare.
Inspired by Baru Latino’s Latin roots, Baru Rubs & Sauces has used the same South American flavours as a springboard to launch the company, which has since introduced many new products and flavours.
A labour of love from the get-go, Baru Rubs & Sauces reflects the same celebration of flavours, scents and freshness as the restaurant from which it grew. Zeta and Nina believe that fresh, healthy, tasty ingredients, a commitment to their customers, and a sustainable growth model are the keys to success.
