Fresh Ideas linked to Fresh Solutions
Fresh-Link Produce, LLC is an integrated produce company with operations throughout the U.S. focusing on exclusive grower representation and strong grower relationships to support our sales to foodservice, retail and wholesale customers in North America. Fresh-Link’s expertise provides solutions in a difficult world of produce sourcing by seamlessly connecting the needs of our customers with our vast network of growers.
Our produce divisions with offices located in New Jersey, Georgia, Arizona, and California represent growers of east coast produce; Mexican-grown produce; hothouse products; table grapes; and tomatoes, including more than 30 repack locations nationwide. The alliances we have with our growers and packers allow us to move with the seasons to supply our customers with quality product year-round from across the country or across town.
Simply, we are an extension of our customers’ organizations as a supply chain partner. Our customer-centric team of seasoned professionals are dedicated to delivering fresh ideas for fresh solutions that link to sustainable business growth.
Consumers today expect the fresh produce they eat is healthy, safe and delicious. As a grower, packer and shipper, our produce is handled from harvesting through distribution in a manner that ensures quality and food safety.
Fresh-Link has strict food safety and food security programs in place for all of our growers and vendor partners. These safety programs require third-party audits on our farms and in packing facilities to ensure federal guidelines are met or exceeded.
Fresh-Link utilizes Azzule Systems, a leading provider of global data management solutions throughout all levels of the supply chain to secure all grower documentation. Azzule delivers secure and efficient storage, distribution and analysis of quality assurance data needed to support interaction and the requirements between buyers and sellers within our supply chain.
