Fruit has a nasty habit of not lasting too long if it’s not eaten right away, but London Fruit Inc. of Pharr, Texas, has remained fresh for more than 30 years. Partner Jerry Garcia says that’s due in large part to the fact that the company hasn’t allowed its relationships to spoil.

Beef is the third most-consumed meat in the world and is the principal meat used in many cultures’ cuisines. The United States is one of the largest consumers of beef (along with Brazil and China) with an average of $41.8 billion in retail and wholesale purchases of beef made each year, according to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. With a goal of meeting this demand in a quality manner, Colorado Boxed Beef Co. (CBBC) has become a major distributor throughout the Southeast.

There are many food distributors serving the numerous mines and exploration camps throughout the Northwest Territories. Northern Foodservices maintains its head office and some of its operations in this remote region of Canada, which makes it capable of filling orders on a next-day basis.

When it comes to getting produce from the field to the fork, the only things consumers are concerned about are quality, safety and freshness. McEntire Produce has spent more than seven decades improving its processes and ensuring the produce it provides to customers is as fresh and safe as possible.

The commitment to supplying the highest quality products possible along with ensuring that Marra Brothers’ products are fresh when customers receive them is contributing to the success of Marra Brothers Distributing Inc., a distributor of bulk and packaged food products in the San Francisco Bay area.

For many family owned businesses, staying successful for more than a few generations is a lofty goal that few are lucky enough to accomplish. But for Bermuda-based John Barritt and Son Ltd., keeping the business up and running since 1874 is simply a matter of providing top-notch customer service, working with the right people and providing a quality product. The longstanding beverage distributor has developed a reputation for success in each of these categories throughout the 21 square miles that is the island of Bermuda – and beyond.

The development of Cayman Distributors Ltd. is as casual as a ride in the back of a pickup truck. When company founder Ken Hall started the Cayman Islands business in 1968, he had been working in the island’s fledgling banking industry. He saw that the few pubs that existed were forced to import their products directly from offshore sources or purchase directly from one of the local hotels. After finding local partners, he decided to quit his banking job and start a liquor distribution company.

Honoring the past and planning for the future are as important to Adelphia Seafood as its day-to-day commitment to provide fresh, quality product to its customers. “Many companies like ours make sure people get fresh products, but I think what makes us different is our commitment to the future,” says Jason Hurleman, president and owner of the Reading, Pa.-based wholesaler.
