The FruitGuys

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    We deliver farm-fresh fruit and vegetables to businesses, individuals and schools nationwide, with a priority on green and sustainable processes. We are family owned and much of our produce comes from small farms, delivered the next day in environmentally friendly crates. We have distribution hubs across the United States. Giving back to the communities in which we operate is a founding principle of our company, and through our GoodWorks program, we focus on projects that support healthy communities, encourage organic and sustainable farming practices, and promote long-term environmental stewardship and economic well-being. In 2015, we donated 550,000 lbs. of fruit to those in need – that’s more than 1 million servings!
