Past & Future

Gilda Industries Inc., was established in the United States in 1967 as a manufacturer of Cuban crackers and Cracker meal.

Our wholesome and superior quality crackers were the first ones in the area and our company earned a leading position in the industry as a result of our innovation, paired with our baking process which delivers a fresh, crunchy and toasty taste in each of our carefully crafted pieces!


Our company was also the pioneer of the unique “scoop” shaped crackers ideal for food pairing with dips, spreads, soups, and a variety of cheeses among others.  The innovative shape was a great hit and our company’s popularity grew steadily making us the ultimate trendsetters in the Cuban cracker industry.


Over the years our product line expanded and diversified to please market trends and to satisfy the demand for assorted products with different flavors, of superior quality and to pair with hot and cold meals such as hors d’oeuvre, dinners and snacks to list a few.  In addition to our original Cuban cracker flavor, we introduced sesame, garlic, butter, no salt and no sugar crackers, whole wheat, mini crackers, multigrain and many more.  Today we also manufacture various flavored breadsticks, cookies, breads, toasts, panettone and other seasonal products that please all ages and ethnicities.


The Blazquez family founded Gilda back in 1920 in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba and today it continues to be proudly managed by 2nd and 3rd generations working as a team.  We take great pride in all of our accomplishments over our decades of existence, and we look forward to continue creating superior products that will please many generations to come!
