Pro*Act has added a Canadian wholesaler to its roster.
Vancouver, British Columbia-based North American Produce Sales supplies retail and foodservice customers out of a 22,000-square-foot distribution center, according to a news release from Monterey, Calif.-based Pro*Act.
“Joining the Pro*Act organization is an important step in the continued evolution of our company,” Dennis Tom, North American’s president, said in the release.
North American Produce Sales is the second Canadian distribution firm to join Pro*Act this year. In January, Edmonton, Alberta-based Fresh Forward joined.
“Just as we have in the U.S., we are developing a strong, unified, specialized produce distribution presence in Canada,” Lloyd Ligier, Pro*Act’s vice president of business development, said in the release.
The addition of North American gives Pro*Act more than 70 member companies.
