SmartCEO magazine recognized Coastal Sunbelt Produce, Savage, Md., this year as one of the top 50 fastest-growing companies in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C., region, said John Corso, Coastal Sunbelt’s president.

The honor was conferred in March, Corso said.

“We have gained that by simply focusing on our customers,” Corso said. “Growth like that is earned, not basically just given.”

Coastal Sunbelt also has increased its number of employees to more than 700, Corson said, although he declined to provide specifics.
