We partner with top growers and shippers to bring to you the highest quality produce available. Our goal is to keep a fresh turn of inventory to give you the freshest product possible.
We are fortunate to have relationships with the most respected growers from California, Mexico, and Peru. These alliances have allowed us to source the freshest, most in-season products from all across the Western hemisphere. Our Western Vegetable Department is ever growing, as we have maintained relationships with our growers and shippers over decades to aid in our success.
E. Armata’s Fruit department is one of its flagship programs. John Acompora has been the head of the Fruit department for over 18 years. In his tenure, he has continued to grow relationships with shippers and customers that have been a part of the Armata family for more than 30 years. The fruit department sources product globally, including but not limited to grapes, apples, pears and stone fruit from the United States, New Zealand, Chile and the South Americas, citrus from California, Morocco, Spain, and South Africa, and more exotic fruit such as lychee from Vietnam, China, and Mexico. The diverse sources of product for the E. Armata fruit department enables us to provide all the desired sizes and varieties of fruit for our customers year round.
E. Armata currently works with 100s of grower/shippers. We are proud of the strong relationships we have built with these growers/shippers over four generations; relationships that extend past the business table.
We have established trust with everybody involved in the process. From the grower – the first source of our business; to the trucker and the transportation of our products; to our employees – who do an excellent job handling our products and services. And above all, the customers who we can count on every day. For our business to succeed, you can’t have anyone without the other.
