Joshua Setton
President & CEO
Setton International Foods, Inc.


Mr. Joshua Setton is the President and CEO of the Setton Farms family of companies. In 1971, he co-founded with his brother, Morris, the original company, Setton’s International Foods, Inc. on Kings Highway in Brooklyn. Since then, Setton and its affiliates have grown to be an importer, exporter, processor, roaster, and grower of the finest-tasting pistachios produced in the United States. Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc., located in California, is the second largest pistachio processor in the U.S. Setton’s International Foods, Inc. in New York also sells many varieties of nuts, dried fruits, candy and snack mixes.

Joshua Setton has stated many times over the years “the more you give, the more you receive.” As a testament to that belief and the success of his family businesses, the Settons formed the Setton Foundation in December, 2000 whose resources are used exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary, or educational purposes. Joshua has been able to bring many organizations under his wing to become part of his “family” through the giving of his long-term support and donations.

For many, many years, Joshua Setton and the Setton Foundation has been a generous supporter of “WE CARE” and this year is no different, as Setton is the 2017 “WE CARE” event sponsor.
