Mira International Foods (Mira) is a family owned and operated business that was launched in 1974, by Mr. Ramses and Pancy Awadalla, as new immigrants pursuing their American dream. Mr. Awadalla, the founder and CEO, was a wonderful visionary, and with the support of his wife Pancy they manufactured and distributed popular ready for retail Middle-Eastern Foods under the brand Mira. Mira’s product line was well ahead of its time and included such now popular and savory items as falafel, hummus, tahini, baba ghanouj, grape leaves, roasted and salted small melon seeds “lib”, and fava beans.
In the 70’s and 80’s Mira’s Eastern Mediterranean food line was tremendously popular among Eastern Mediterranean immigrants and quickly became a household name. In 1993 Mira introduced Mira Premium Mango and Guava Nectars. Made with only the finest fruits carefully selected from trees near the banks of the majestic Nile River, the nectars became an instant success. Fans of Mira would routinely compare the experience of drinking Mira to biting into an actual fruit! Sensing enormous growth potential from a broader appeal for its wildly popular nectars, the Awadalla’s focused their energy exclusively on expanding distribution and promoting these delicious nectars. Over the next few years Mira was introduced to thousands of discerning consumers at hundreds of festivals, food shows, and in store samplings and our loyal fan base eventually propelled Mira Mango Nectar to the #1 Nielsen ranked nectar in Metro NY, Boston, and Philadelphia.
Most recently Mira launched ‘Azul’ 90% Coconut water with real coconut pieces and ‘Azul’ Pure 100% Coconut water offering the perfect balance of sweetness and natural coconut taste. We are so pleased to announce that you can now find Azul Coconut Water at Dollar Tree stores nationwide! Mira Nectars and Azul Coconut Water are also available at major retailers all over the East Coast.
