Our People


Caring for our employees and our community:





  • Our extensive ongoing Worker Protection and Food Safety and Security training helps ensure a safe and healthy work environment for all areas of the company.
  • As a family owned and operated business, we are lucky to have strong employee loyalty, with multiple generations of families working in various departments.
  • Initiated by our founder, Ferdinand Etchart, we maintain a solid relationship with St. Mary’s Food Bank where we have contributed 695,300lbs in produce over the past fiscal year.
  • We see great value in supporting the community we call home, and sponsor the Citizen of the Month program at our local Buys & Girls club, named for our founder.
  • To encourage positive development,  community youth organizations and local sports teams are also sponsored annually.
  • Our proximity to the Wildlife World Zoo allows us to cut down on green waste and send over boxes of excess greens weekly to help supplement the animals’ diets.
