The Veterans

Our team's focus is building strong relationship with customers all around the world by delivering the freshest and best flavored produce.

Sammy Cacciatore

Owner and President

I have been around the produce industry all of my life. My experience started with retail in our family-owned supermarket chain in Montreal and progressed to wholesale and packaging businesses. Our family has been farming in California for over 30 years. I began overseeing the Table Grape operations and farming in 2008 with one small vineyard and have grown it to include vineyards in several areas of the Central Valley. I am proud we are a grower, packer, shipper and are able to provide high quality produce to all of our customers.
