As the largest processor of fruits and vegetables in the US, Seneca is committed to providing safe, delicious and healthy food products at an affordable price. We supply almost every US retailer, large institutional foodservice clients, and we export to over 90 countries. We also offer an extensive selection of market-leading products under our own brand names. With more than 30 locations across America, our operations include farming, food processing, seed breeding and research, can manufacturing, and distribution.
Our wide range of products are produced in state-of-the-art facilities that are continually upgraded to adhere to stringent quality controls and optimize our use of natural resources. We process over 60 different types of fruits and vegetables and have a variety of capabilities and packaging options in the frozen and shelf stable markets.
An integral part of Seneca's success is our partnership with local growers and family farms. We currently contract with approximately 2,000 growers for over 230,000 acres of produce. With our locations coast-to-coast, Seneca has more geographical crop diversity for vegetables than most other processors. Our plants are also strategically located very close to our growers, which means fields are freshly harvested and processed at peak freshness, locking in nutrients and minimizing our environmental impact.
At Seneca, we’re closely involved in every major phase of our products, from seed breeding to manufacturing our own containers. This unique position helps ensure that we meet industry standards and push the bar on quality. We continually make significant investments in facilities, technologies and talent so we can enhance processes, increase line speeds, leverage logistical efficiencies and ultimately maintain the highest level of quality across all our operations.
