A few words about us

Founder and President, George Seifert has worked in the produce QA inspection business for over 25 years. Approximately 6 of those years were with the U.S.D.A. New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets and the South Carolina Department of Agriculture with his primary responsibilities being produce inspection.

George then went to work for what is still one of the top produce retailers in the country, Wegmans Food Markets Inc. in Western New York. When he started with the company back in 1989 there were no detailed produce QA programs in place. When he left in 2009, he had been responsible for developing and implementing a state of the art program that continues to keep the company as one of the top produce retailers to this day.

Throughout all the years George has been in the business, he has become quite diversified. While working in retail, he built solid relationships with many growers/shippers, wholesalers/distributors, brokers, importers and exporters. He has also worked closely with food safety and auditing personnel, in the private and public sector, new item development opportunities, operations, sales, logistics, trucking, and ordering. He understands the business from the grower to the consumer and everything that needs to be done in-between. He has much to offer.
