At some point growing up, you realize there are things bigger than yourself. When you gain that knowledge that you can help more people being a part of a group than you could as an individual, you then begin to make decisions that genuinely make a difference in the world.
In 2007, GoFresh took a giant leap forward in their food distribution business by joining Pro*Act, a national network of local distributors that allows GoFresh to take its passion and focus on LOCAL to reach even more local restaurants and food outlets. Pro*Act is a family of more than 7,200 employees with 50 different companies, all passionate distributors of fresh food, working together with one goal in mind — delivering excellence across North America.
What does this mean to you? As a Pro*Act partner, we can turn even more attention on you and your needs. This national network allows us to refine our process even further and give you greater value and selection, and this translates directly to your bottom line. In short, we can serve you even better and offer you a wider selection of products.
Max Yeater, the President of Pro*Act shares a goal from their, “Everything we do is focused on streamlining this supply chain to provide you cost benefits and a simple process for securing the freshest produce.”
“Streamlining” is a sexy word for being organized and eliminating waste–both time and resources, and everyone at the GoFresh team knows both are extremely valuable. That’s why this network is so important. We’re a part of something bigger that has broader reach and more resources to help make your day-to-day operations more successful and even take your business to the next level.
Another big reason GoFresh is so proud to be a Pro*Act partner is because of their personal mission, “achieving ‘the perfect order’ – which means delivering the right product at the right time, meeting the right specs and all at the right price. It’s a lofty goal, but that’s how we strive for excellence.” – It’s nice when everyone is working together toward a common goal.
As Russ Hickson, GoFresh – Business Development Manager, put its, “Pro*Act is the largest most stable nationally inttegrated produce sourcing program partnered with the most valuable national clients who are all serviced by the most premier independent produce distributors in the nation. Kind of a good combination”.
