Our Story

Developed in 2016 by a group of about 12 independent produce distributors looking for interaction and collaboration, from HR issues to operations, truck leasing and procurement.  We have truckloads moving to unify independent distributor’s volumes with a goal of 2 billion in combined purchases to allow them to compete and maintain the ability for today’s foodservice and retail requirements.

 

We offer an alternative purchasing solution for the foodservice and retail industry that brings integrity and value options not currently offered in todays market...MORE TO COME!

Our FOCUS

FOOD SAFETY

ProduceGPO puts food safety FIRST. Our commitment to protecting food safety at all levels is where our job begins. All of our quality grower/suppliers must meet specific guidelines for quality assurance and are inspected by approved third-party auditors. We have a strategic system in place and a devoted team available 24/7 in the event of a recall or outbreak situation. Our dedication to Food Safety is of upmost importance and truly scales the entire food chain from FARM TO FORK™.

 

SUSTAINABILITY

Our industry and environment is in mother nature’s hands 365 days of the year and that is something we cannot control, but by partnering with grower/suppliers that actively have sustainable practices in place we can control our effect on it. Depending on the commodity being grown, our partners have different systems in place to help sustain our environmental resources. Practices such as water reduction and/or recycling, crop rotation, and decreasing energy consumption are just a few of the ways our valued suppliers are being good stewards of the land and preparing for future crops and future generations.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

At ProduceGPO we strongly believe in the utmost standards of ethical behavior and integrity. We strive to actively promote awareness in the implementation of socially responsible business practices not only within our company, but with our valued partners. Our morals are based upon abiding and sharing with our partners our expectations including but not limited to; competitive wages, safe working conditions, sanitary facilities and child labor laws. It is not just our responsibility; it is a natural standard of our core beliefs.
