Founded on April 24, 1947 by the Ferachi family, Capitol City Produce has grown to become one of the most respected and reliable providers of produce in the Gulf Coast region. Known for providing the highest quality produce and superior customer service, we offer everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to seasonal items, frozen products, fresh dairy products and value-added processed items.
Our mission is to provide our customers with the freshest quality produce and superior customer service while maintaining the highest standards for food safety.
Headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, we serve a wide range of customers throughout the state, going as far West as the Texas/Louisiana Border, as far East as Panama City, FL, and as far North as Montgomery, AL. We have also just recently acquired Sunrise Produce in Robertsdale, Alabama which allows us to serve the Mobile and Florida areas better. Led by a senior management team who has dedicated their lives to the produce industry, we offer a workforce of more than 260 experienced and well-trained professionals who are dedicated to meeting the unique needs of each customer, every day.
At Capitol City Produce we take pride in being industry leaders in innovative technology and safe food practices. This includes a state-of-the-art temperature-monitored facility, more than 69 refrigerated trucks and 16 refrigerated docks – all of which are utilized to ensure that we maintain the proper temperature on all products and never break the cold chain. In addition, we have multiple programs and procedures in place to ensure product quality and safety.
Perhaps most importantly of all, the people at Capitol City Produce understand that there is simply no substitute for outstanding customer service – which is one of the reasons why we received the Purveyor of the Year Award from the American Culinary Chefs Association. Being friendly, helpful and knowledgeable is a must for our employees. Our team is dedicated to providing you with prompt, professional service every day – and meeting your needs with a smile.
