When it comes to growing grapes, ownership has its benefits. It allows us to carefully control the entire process from the fields to the final destination. Our state-of-the art packing houses are located right next to where our grapes are picked, making sure they get into cold storage quickly, before they’re shipped across North America.
Our experience supplying a wide variety of grapes from South America runs deep and reaches far. From our fields in Peru, to our packing, pre-cooling and storage facilities, to our relationships across the entire cold-supply chain, we know how to get the absolute best grapes to you, as efficiently as possible, no matter what the season.
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.
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.
