US: Kingston Fresh partners with Crown Jewels Produce

Kingston Fresh and Crown Jewels Produce have joined forces to implement a program that is designed to expand Kingston’s product line and extend their shipping season of green, red, and yellow bell peppers, Italian and yellow squash, eggplant, melons, grapes and other fruits and vegetables. The companies look to their combined experience exceeding 75 years to maximize the synergies of their new venture.

Leadership at Kingston Fresh expressed excitement about the new agreement. “Kingston Fresh has been a leading provider of fresh produce to both the foodservice and retail sectors for over 40 years. We are always exploring new ways to innovate and add value to our fresh produce programs, and couldn't be more excited about consolidating efforts with another industry veteran, Crown Jewels Produce, to maximize efficiencies among our companies. Between us, we will be able to expand our list of offerings, and for the first time ever, offer year-round shipping for many programs!”

“Combining Crown Jewels’ grower base and current programs in California, Mexico, Arizona, Peru, Chile and Spain with our current offerings will expand our ability to create year round programs for all our customers, both foodservice and retail” said Nick Proia, V.P. of Business Development for Kingston Fresh.

David O. Kingston, President of Kingston Fresh, commented, “At Kingston Fresh, we are constantly seeking new, creative, and innovative ways to fulfil the needs and exceed the expectations of our customers, and this new venture does just that. I am extremely proud of the work our team is doing in this area and am excited to have a partner with similar goals.”
