- by Robert Schaulis
LOS ANGELES, CA – Fresh for the New Year, Davalan Fresh, one of Southern California’s largest distributors of conventional, specialty, and organic produce, has announced the launch of a new website—davalanfresh.com.
“After being in business for 35 years, we thought it might be time for a website and let some people know who we are!” joked Alan Frick, Co-Founder of Davalan Fresh, in a press release. “All kidding aside, thanks to the hard work of our dedicated sales team, we have very quietly and proudly grown into one of the largest packer/shipper/distributors in Los Angeles. And, while we already do a lot of business across the country, we’ve decided to invest time and energy into getting the word out about who we are, what we do, and make buyers aware of the vast variety of produce we have to offer—every day.”
The produce provider noted that its new website will add a variety of new tools to better service its burgeoning customer base.
“We wanted to create a website that provides information our buyers and customers can use every day,” noted Dave Bouton, the “Dav” of the Davalan partnership. “Besides breaking down our hundreds of conventional, specialty, and organic items, the new website will also provide a real-time snap-shot of what’s available, an organized portal to contact our sales people, as well as rolling out our on-line ordering system, which will allow customers to order in advance, at their convenience.”
According to the company’s press release, Davalan Fresh offers hundreds of items in a portfolio of one of the most comprehensive lines of produce available from any supplier, accessed from some of the finest growers across the globe, acquired through decades of honesty, quality, and reputation. And with its new website, Davalan Fresh hopes to provide deeper insight into the breadth of the company’s operations and the variety of services it provides.
“Often I hear comments like, ‘I didn’t know you guys carried this or that, or I didn’t know you had 35 load-capacity ripening bays,’” added Frick. “I think even our longest standing customers will be surprised at all the items, value-added, and logistics services we provide when they visit our new website.”
Davalan Fresh, founded in 1983 by Alan Frick and Dave Bouton, now occupies thousands of square feet at the Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Market and operates a Value-Added, Ripening, and Shipping headquarters just blocks from the market.
