The Company Today
...
Wainer, a big man who has the unflagging enthusiasm of a boy, is the third generation to run the business, which his grandfather founded in New Bedford's seaport in 1914. He joined his late father, Sid, after college and helped the company expand and prosper, adding more restaurants to their client list and shipping produce and specialty foods to airlines, institutions, and high-end markets. Business has tripled in the last six years, Wainer says.
For years, Wainer and his father bought most of their winter produce from California, Europe, and beyond.

Squash blossoms, heirloom tomatoes, 35 varieties of potatoes, Tuscan kale, fresh soybeans, strawberries, raspberries, Cape gooseberries, and other fruits and vegetables are now going from this region across the country.

More growing is done on a former apple orchard near the sea in South Dartmouth, where Wainer and his family live.

"We want to make sure they make money," Wainer says. He sees the company's role as connecting regional farms to chefs here and around the country.

"He wants the whole vegetable to show up intact when a sushi roll is cut," says Wainer.
