The early days of Associated Produce, Inc. consisted of buying merchandise from the wholesale terminal markets in New York, Philadelphia and Boston and distributing it to our customers. The demand for our produce quickly grew to the point where our suppliers were not able to consistently supply the quality that we required. This set in motion our importing business. We are currently importing/exporting produce from or to every continent on the planet. Our export division reaches across the globe from the US to Europe, Asia, South America, South Africa, Russia and Ukraine. This gives us the buying power and price advantages of some of the largest produce companies even if the produce is not all coming to our New York operation.
From our humble beginnings buying produce from the areas terminal markets, to buying produce firsthand at the field level, we have taken huge strides to enter the production and farming of our own produce. We have partnerships and affiliates with growers/Shippers from countries such as: Ecuador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Mexico, Panama, Dominican Republic as well as locally grown. This ensures we set the highest standards on production with strict quality control measures which we pride ourselves on. Our farming operations include everything from selecting the highest quality, disease resistant seeds, to finding the most pristine fertile lands to grow the product.
We exercise proven farming techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation. Our entire operation is closely monitored by experienced farmers from germination of the seed to the sanitary packing plants in which the product is prepped for the overseas voyage to our warehouse in New York.
