We Own It

Vanguard Direct sources the finest produce entirely in–house, with wholly–owned, global growing operations dedicated to providing our customers in North America with a consistent and reliable supply of market–specific produce. The same ‘produce, precisely’ commitment that defines Vanguard International speaks for Vanguard Direct, with the focus on ‘owning it.’

Perfect is a Process

Vanguard maintains control over all elements of the supply chain, including our orchards and our new packing facility in Peru. From production and packing, to ocean freight management, distribution, and management of the entire cold chain, our commitment is to bring the world’s freshest and best to our customers. We are dedicated to being perfect in every way.

Growing the Future

Vanguard Direct provides a sure path to perfect produce and a growing opportunity for the development of new varieties. We deliver the flavor of the field to the plate on the table by a wholly–owned, carefully controlled and fully–integrated operation. Always searching for fresh ideas, this year we will add succulent Tango mandarins to our produce menu, as we continue to bring the world to the doorstep of our customers in North America.

Grapes in Great Variety

Our Vanguard Fresh, Red Tiger, and Pampa Fresh brands are global grape icons.

From Our Places to Yours

The journey from our Company–owned Vanguard Direct fields around the world to produce bins in North America is seamless and certain in the hands of growers, distributors and wholesalers who share a common commitment to timely delivery of produce provided precisely for the markets they serve. Our promise is perfect, and we keep it.
