“We are excited to have shoppers associate our brand with the high-quality fresh produce we have provided for years,” said Michael Castagnetto, president of Robinson Fresh. “We will continue to provide our retail and foodservice customers fresh produce, ideas and solutions to help their businesses both today and tomorrow, no matter what challenges they face. We are working to help consumers feed their families’ healthy lifestyles by offering the best in fresh for endless possibilities in creating nourishing meals.”

“As our retail customers know, we go beyond providing fresh produce for their stores and e-commerce platforms.
