J&J procures the majority of its fresh fruit and vegetables within the United States -- from California to the South Eastern seaboard, and we have a strong commitment to procuring locally grown produce across Minnesota and Wisconsin when in season. But we also source around the world when it makes sense, such as melons from Guatemala and Honduras, apples from New Zealand & Chile, pears from Argentina, citrus from South Africa, Peru, and Chile, and grapes and stone fruits from producing countries in South America. We work closely with our neighbors in Mexico importing beautiful chili peppers, bell peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
We provide grocers with daily deliveries of fresh cut produce pre-packaged for convenience. We also produce a value added organic program under our Earthgrown Organic ® label.

Includes promoting organic agriculture as a whole, developing healthy produce choices in the greater Midwest, supporting the local economy, and being a strong leader in the organic industry. The organic industry is an ever-changing and evolving process, with challenges abound, but we relish and embrace the opportunity to face them head on. Many things that were once thought impossible have become commonplace! However, this does not stop us from finding creative and innovative ways to continually move forward. Organic agriculture reflects a desire to not only preserve the planet for future generations but also a desire to ensure the health, vitality, and longevity of those generations. We see the urgent need for education throughout the multiple levels of the produce industry and actively seek partners to spread the accessibility of nourishing food options. We continuously encourage and support programs that give back to growers and to their communities. We support all of our customers, both big and small, in hopes that the phrase “a rising tide raises all boats” will prove itself true again and again. We are enthusiastically and eagerly looking forward to a future where organic produce is the standard.
