When you’re ready to enjoy confidence in your produce program, we’re ready to develop a successful, long-term relationship.
With more than 25 years of experience behind the Markon First Crop (MFC), Ready-Set-Serve (RSS), and Markon Essentials (ESS) produce lines, and the value focus of our Field Select program, Markon has earned the trust of thousands of customers in North America.
Markon’s multi-unit team integrates Salinas, California-based staff with regional experts located across our international network of member distributors. We will coordinate our team to support your business in whatever way works best for you. The bottom line? Unsurpassed quality, safety, and service for our innovative multi-unit operators.
The benefits of working with Markon member distributors include:
Markon is an alliance of seven independent foodservice companies located across the United States and Canada. We leverage our pricing power while delivering a dependable supply of the highest quality produce available.
Looking for contract(s) tailored specifically to your business? No problem! Markon will help you navigate the pros and cons of contracting—the why, where, and when--by item and by season. We offer standardized contracts that have been designed to maximize savings, and then customize them to your unique needs.
No matter where you are located, Markon is nearby. With member-distributor warehouses throughout the U.S. and Canada, our comprehensive coverage allows us to minimize deliveries and increase drop sizes to everyone’s benefit (decreased invoice fees, lower transportation costs, reduced emissions, and smaller carbon footprints).
Your best interests are at the core of our mission. Since opening our doors in 1985, Markon has been a trail-blazer in the food safety arena.
Markon’s propriety brands offer MUA operators two distinct advantages: consistent quality and nationwide traceability. Available in all categories and at all price points, Markon brands have an unparalleled track record for quality. And, in the unlikely event of a food-borne illness associated with fresh produce, our national account customers can isolate and/or withdraw 80% or more of all fresh produce supplies with a single telephone call to Markon.
We work diligently to reduce the chances of a food safety outbreak—but in the event one occurs, Markon’s trace back and recall capabilities will help protect and preserve your good name.
To provide you with real-time information about the fresh produce you serve, Markon gets our Boots in the Field® to assess and deliver the facts. Our extensive field and facility presence is one of the most critical steps Markon takes to ensure the safety and high quality of our fresh fruit and vegetable products.
Like many of our customers, Markon is mindful of the produce and foodservice industries’ impact on our eco-system and communities.
Markon is more than a supply source. To keep you educated about the myriad elements that affect the produce industry, we distribute an extensive library of informative reports on a regular basis.
