COMPANY PROFILE

Southern Specialties was founded in 1990 by Robert Colescott, President and CEO of the company. Our mission, then, was to provide the finest restaurants and hotels in the nation with the best service and highest quality specialty produce. 

Today, we are proud to continue that mission while including the leading retailers and club stores in North America. Our Southern Selects line of value added specialty produce and our extensive private label programs provide consumers with delicious, nutritious, safe and convenient produce for the entire family.  

 

The foundation of Southern Specialties resides in the quality of the people and businesses that make up our culture and enterprise. As a company, it's rewarding to have traveled so far and have such great visions for the future. We look forward to continuing our enduring partnerships, and providing the freshest and most delicious, quality assured fruits and vegetables to our valued customers for years to come.

Integrated Supply Chain

We control all aspects of growing, importing, processing and distributing our expanding menu of specialty fruits and vegetables from the best farms in the Americas. Our decades of experience and attention to detail have made us the leader in our sector.

Ensuring Safe and Healthy Produce

We are committed to providing our customers the highest quality produce possible by engaging in the best food safety practices every step of the way. Food safety begins on the farms, where our growers monitor water sources, limit the use of fertilizers and pesticides, and rely on the use of beneficial insects to provide biological controls where possible.

Our trained quality assurance team works hard to maintain our food safety standards and closely monitors each phase of the process. Comprehensive guidelines and procedures are adhered to at every stage of production, from planting and harvesting in the field, to processing in our facilities, to distributing to our customers' warehouses. 

NSF Agriculture conducts inspections to verify our practices are among the safest in the industry. Our customers come first, and we consistently strive to deliver the safest, freshest and best tasting products to keep them happy and healthy.

Exceptional Service, Quality & Value

Our unwavering insistence of quality and unparalled customer service has helped us become one of America's leading growers and distributors of premium specialty produce. Our customers include the finest retail stores, club stores and foodservice distributors in the United States and Canada.

After years of success as a grower and supplier to the foodservice industry, we expanded our product line to include a variety of offerings for the retail sector. The Southern Selects product line was developed to meet the needs of today's educated consumer. To learn more about our retail line of products, click here.
