Los Angeles - Gateway to the World and its Fruits and Vegetables

“We’re in the biggest fruit and vegetable
growing state,” says Francisco Clouthier,
founding owner of Maui-Fresh International,
Los Angeles. “We’re also within two hours
of the Mexican border and 10 hours from
Nogales, AZ. We have access to the ports
and are within 20 minutes of Los Angeles
International Airport; and we also bring in
produce from Western Canada, which is two
days away by truck. Los Angeles has become
a hub for destinations that don’t have access
to the produce we do.”

 

This strategic location makes the Los
Angeles Wholesale Market a convenient
place for smaller retailers to source an incredible
variety of the world’s produce.
“The small retailers, with from one to 10
stores, buy heavily in the Wholesale Market,”
says Clouthier. “Not only do we sell items at
the Wholesale Market, we also offer consolidation
services. We are able to bring in
produce from many different growing areas.”
Some major retailers have also come back
to relying more on the Wholesale Market,
according to Clouthier. “I’ve been here going
on 18 years, and I’ve seen it change and then
change back,” he says. “We supply a lot of
chain stores that moved to centralize their
buying at distribution centers and then
changed back to getting more from the
Wholesale Market.”
