Our Services

Expertise in Produce and Beyond

With decades of experience in buying, selling, and merchandising, we supply restaurants, grocery stores, institutions, wholesalers, the marine industry, and more with a full range of services. By getting to know our customer’s specific needs and expectations, and by keeping them updated with the latest products, trends and market conditions, we can deliver unique, customized services to each of our customers.

Purchasing

Each of our distribution centers has dedicated purchasing team to coordinate procurement of local products from each growing area and collaborate on regional and international purchases throughout our delivery network. Our team provides depth of knowledge and long term relationships with our grower partners to enable customers to cultivate possibilities for their businesses.

We purchase and supply our customers with the best quality produce, because we believe that fresh, delicious food should fuel their businesses. Allowing our customers the opportunity to have conversations directly with the farmers and allowing farmers the opportunity to understand the perspective of the customers and their consumers creates a situation in which everyone wins.

Warehouse & Transportation

Quality has always been a main focus at Charlie’s Produce. Within our modern warehouses and distribution fleet, we carefully consider every point in the delivery process to maintain quality, increase efficiency and reduce the cost of our produce during its three-day (or less) journey from the field, to the crate, to its final destination. Our large purchasing volume ensures that warehouse inventory turns are fast, while our inbound logistics teams rush product from the growing regions to our facilities.

SEARCH CAREERS

Fresh Solutions

Charlie’s Produce is constantly searching for ways to improve industry processes and services on behalf of our partners and consumers. With a growing need for more fresh, ready-to-eat products, we established a new state-of-the art food processing plant made with the retail or food service operator in mind. We are on a never-ending quest to develop new products to offer.

Our comprehensive selection of freshly prepared items includes everything our customers need and then some. If we don’t currently offer what you are looking for, talk to us about custom processing. We have onsite development personnel that can work with you to create custom items and more.
