The Freshest Produce
Fresh produce is top of mind with today’s shoppers. We have developed an exacting logistics program bringing crops from the field to the store with speed and quality ensuring the best product possible. With state-of-the-art warehouse facilities, produce-only shipments on optimal trucks and a customer-centric model of service handled by our experienced account managers, we have eliminated up to three days from the supply chain cycle. Not only is this crucial in the highly perishable produce category, but also to your customers' in-store experience. Learn more.

Ahead of the Curve
We work with top growers in the United States to bring new items to market. Often we are granted exclusive first rights to a product for several growing seasons, as is the case with the Bordeaux red potato which will be available in Fall 2014. Whether it's a never-before-seen piece of produce or a perennial customer favorite, we seek the best varieties for size, flavor and presentation. Those who work with W. Newell know the name is synonymous with the latest in new item innovation and packaging.
