What is an Arepa? Arepa is a staple food of pre-Columbian times, made of ground maize dough. Originally from Colombia and Venezuela. Ideal for any moment of the day, such as breakfast, tea-time, dinner, as a side or as a base, for lunch or a snack. It is comparable to a Mexican tortilla, but most arepas are made directly from corn and not other grains This makes arepa's thicker and softer inside. SARY is a family business founded in 1987 that grew maintaining the original recipe and using only the best ingredients for their arepas. The arepa's are frozen, so easy to use at any time of the day.
