Central Grocers Fresh Produce Program procures for our members an incredible variety of the freshest produce available anywhere from our grower/shipper partners including Dole, Driscoll, Chiquita, and Del Monte. Our new state of the art temperature controlled produce rooms keep the farm fresh produce in the perfect environment as the members order is filled and delivered to our member’s store.
Quality Control Freshness Inspections
To guarantee that Central’s members only receive the best top quality produce every time, Central Grocers expert quality inspectors check the products in our distribution center every day using rigorous standards. We inspect the produce as it arrives at Central’s warehouse, as well as, daily random inspection of stored product.
Inspected for Product Quality
At Central we test individual produce for appearance, sweetness, taste, or imperfections so that when it arrives at our member’s store, it’s in perfect condition for our members customers. Central’s produce team makes certain that Central carries the variety our members want and expect. Central’s produce team has over 100 years of combined experience in the produce business.
