Produce food distributor MidWest fresh fleet of trucksIn October of 1994, we moved into a new distribution center located at 1111 Cable Avenue. This enabled us to convert our former warehouse at 38 N. Glenwood Ave. into a ripening and repacking facility for tomatoes, avocados, and bananas. Only 1/2 block apart, these two facilities offer great flexibility and continued growth potential. We have built an additional cooler in June, 2000. This brings our combined cooler space to 20,000 square feet.

In April of 2009. we merged with Z Produce Company.  This merger gave us greater market exposure, flexibility for growth, with expanded product lines, better distribution of product, and increased buying programs.

The primary personnel at Mid/West Fresh Foods offer a wide range of food service experience. Our professional backgrounds include stints as a regional chain consultant, fresh food processor, corporate purchasing agent, franchise owner and restaurant general manager. This inside knowledge of the food service industry is another reason we are are so dedicated to excellent service – many of us have been in your shoes!

We at Mid/West Fresh Foods are quite proud of the service we provide and of the clients we work with. We are also proud to support our local community and are members of the Franklinton Board of Trade as well as Produce GPO.
