To experience the taste sensation of fresh fruits and vegetables grown all over the world, you need only take a short trip to your Market Produce Department.
Caruso Produce in Tualatin, Oregon searches the globe for the finest fruits and vegetables, choosing the very best at their peak of ripeness and flavor, delivering them directly to your Market.
President Joe Caruso’s father and uncles started the business back in 1945. Today, the company has grown to include more than 75 employees in Tualatin, as well as a facility in Redmond that serves the bustling resort, hotel and restaurant trade in Central Oregon.
The secret to their long-term success, says Joe, is remaining a service-oriented company. “We work very hard to get our customers what they need. We get fresh produce into markets all over the region, 52 weeks a year.”
Caruso maintains excellent relationships with suppliers, and stays one step ahead of the weather and the seasons around the globe.
“It changes from year to year,” says Joe. “But you begin to learn what regions are ready to start producing, and where food has been in the ground for a long time and might not be producing as well.”
Most recently, Caruso has stepped up its efforts to source organic produce from local growers to meet the ever-increasing demand for foods that are chemical-free,” Joe says.
Visit your Market Produce Department and you’ll discover a variety of Caruso citrus fruits, apples, grapes, sweet potatoes, yams, and much more.
