Delivering the Best Produce in the Industry

In 1986, Markon introduced the first foodservice-specific brand for produce called Markon First Crop. This industry-changing move was followed by many more: the first iceless products (starting with broccoli in 1989); the first recyclable, staple-free cartons (in 1994); the first pre-cut, value-added brand (Ready-Set-Serve in 1996); and the first to initiate a comprehensive food safety program (1997). Every year, we continue to introduce new products, time-saving cuts, and innovative packaging based on the needs of our member- and operator-customers.


Produce handling recommendations:

  • Establish and maintain a comprehensive food safety program tailored to your operation
  • Rinse whole fresh fruits and vegetables under clean running water prior to use
  • Markon's Ready-Set-Serve products are table-ready and do not need to be rinsed

    Search Markon's product catalog by either selecting a product category or a Markon member who distributes our produce.
