California Treasurer Fiona Ma Visits Two GrubMarket Wholesale/Distributor Facilities; Mike Xu and Stevie Shandler Maier Discuss
LOS ANGELES, CA - Through strategic acquisitions, expansions, and partnerships, GrubMarket has continued to establish itself as a strong player in the fresh produce industry, and now more recognition has come its way. Recently, two of the company’s Los Angeles, California, wholesale/distributor facilities, JC Produce and SGS Produce, were visited by California Treasurer Fiona Ma and her team.
"We are thrilled to host California State Treasurer Fiona Ma at GrubMarket's JC Produce and SGS Produce facilities in the Los Angeles area," said Mike Xu, Chief Executive Officer of GrubMarket. "As an Asian American founder who started GrubMarket with big goals to disrupt the food supply chain industry and make fresh healthy food accessible to everyone, I am happy to see Treasurer Ma's support for GrubMarket and our community, as we continue building one of the fastest-growing and most impactful food tech companies globally. Together, we will continue to drive a more resilient and sustainable food future for all."
During her tour on August 18, Ma spoke with employees of both companies, as well as employees from other GrubMarket businesses in the area.
The event also allowed her to witness the inner workings of receiving and distributing highly perishable products such as fruits and vegetables, a press release explained.
“It was a pleasure meeting with all of the successful general managers in the GrubMarket ecosystem and gaining a stronger understanding of GrubMarket’s critical role in our food supply chain,” said Ma. “Watching produce come off refrigerated trucks and brought into warehouses, then moved on forklifts to accommodate Los Angeles County’s 10 million-plus consumers was an exhilarating experience.”
Stevie Shandler Maier, GrubMarket’s Sustainability and Business Development Manager, also shared some insight into the recent visit.
“Our GrubMarket team is committed to supporting California and U.S. agricultural industries through sustainable operations and a focus on addressing food-loss prevention,” said Maier. “We were excited for the opportunity to discuss vital matters with our state treasurer, Fiona Ma, who has a history of showing her support through solution-based programs with clean energy and resources for small businesses.”
