A new consolidated entity has debuted following Indianapolis-based IF&P Foods’ acquisition of Illinois-based Get Fresh Produce last month. FreshEdge includes produce and specialty food distributors, freshcut operations and a USDA kitchen, including Piazza Produce, Get Fresh Produce, and Indianapolis Fruit, among others.
The company says it operates over 400,000 square feet of distribution and processing facilities with 1,200 employees and a fleet of over 500 trucks.
FreshEdge will be led by Steve Grinstead as chief executive officer and IF&P Foods CEO, Greg Corsaro, as president and chief operating officer.
“Over the last several years, IF&P Foods has invested heavily in our management team, digital platform, warehouse facilities and logistics platform,” said Greg Corsaro, President and COO of FreshEdge. “With the acquisition of Get Fresh Produce, the combined platform can integrate our facilities and combine our offerings to provide the freshest and most complete suite of products to all of our customers.”
