Rather than being picked early to ripen during the truck ride to the distributorís warehouse, our produce is harvested and delivered to our markets at the height of freshness, ensuring optimal nutritional value and flavor.
The average journey from field to fork for most produce is nearly 1,500 miles - almost 27 times further than the average distance that local produce travels.
