USA Produce Pride
Today’s global economy makes it possible to find produce imported from all over the world at any American grocery store. After all, it’s not news that American consumers are demanding--they want what they want, when they want it--whether it’s peaches in March or tomatoes in November.

We understand that as a produce professional your main objective is to meet the needs of your customers, while at the same time meeting the needs of your equally-demanding stakeholders. But a growing number of American consumers are thinking twice and seriously weighing the benefits of imported produce against the risks; risks in terms of their personal health and safety, as well the cost to the U.S. economy. Recent research reflects this growing concern and indicates that more and more consumers are choosing to buy locally-grown produce and USA #1 produce for exactly those reasons.

When you buy onions from Peri & Sons Farms, a USA grower, packer, shipper, you and your customers can rest assured that everything about how we grow our onions and where we grow our onions is meticulously documented and certified. All of our processes are carried out with the best interest of our customers and consumer’s health and welfare in mind, and our practices also support jobs and the economy right here in the USA.

As a produce professional you have enough surprises in your life; you don’t want to be surprised to find out that the produce you’re buying was farmed using questionable farming, processing and labor practices. So give us a call and let us explain the difference produce grown in the USA makes and give us a chance to be your year-round supplier of safe, domestically-grown onions shipped straight from our farms.

When it comes to growing sweet onions, here’s why our Sweetie Sweet® onions beat the imports.
