In addition to cucumber pickles, The Full Belly line includes several delicious pickled vegetable varieties including pickled curry cauliflower, spicy French green beans, hot carrots, oil free Giardinera, red onions and even a beer brined pickle. Each proprietary recipe boasts a unique flavor profile, and all products are hand cut and hand packed.
In 2012 Mitch Wasserman opened Full Belly as an artisan kitchen producing hand pies, savory muffins, focaccia, granola, soups and a few varieties of pickles for retail sale in Highwood, Illinois. By mid-2014 Full Belly had morphed into a full time pickle manufacturer, and increased the product line to 12 products available at Whole Foods, Mariano’s, Heinen’s and additional retailers in the Chicago market. In 2015 Full Belly signed on with Fortune Fish & Gourmet, and have since increased their local presence and placed their line in Busch’s Markets in Ann Arbor Michigan.
Mitch’s goal is to grow Full Belly into a nationally distributed brand without compromising on or sacrificing the quality of the all natural, never cooked or processed, healthy, delicious and unique artisan products currently produced.
