We Are Now SQF Certified!

E. Armata Inc. has been a staple in the Hunts Point Market for many years.  We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality fruits and produce available to our customers.  From our past to our future, our high standards of quality have always and will continue to be at our top of mind. 

E. Armata’s History of Quality

The team at E. Armata Inc. is no stranger to quality services.  Our founder, Erasmo Armata came to New York from Sicily in the 1980s and grew the company from the ground up.  Starting with selling lemons out of a burlap sack, Erasmo worked to build this company on the back of quality. He knew customers would continue to return if they were given high-quality produce, which is why he never purchased or sold anything that fell below his rigorous standards.  His family also continued with this tradition. After deciding the company needed to expand to distributing vegetables and West Coast produce, Erasmo’s son Frank moved cross country. Frank would follow crops from Arizona to California to make sure only the specific lots that met E. Armata’s standards were shipped back to New York.

 

SQF Certification

To show how seriously we take quality, our company has gone through the rigorous task of becoming SQF certified.  The Safe Quality Food Program is recognized worldwide by retailers, brand owners, and foodservice providers.  Offered through the Safe Quality Food Institute, this program shows the commitment to food quality and safety E. Armata brings to the Hunts Point Market.
