Maglio Produce

For five generations Maglio has proven to be a leader in providing innovative solutions to meet every customer’s unique fresh produce needs. We have maintained a steadfast commitment to forward-thinking food safety practices and have not shied away from investments in equipment and facility technology.

When our customers think of Maglio, we want them to think of us as a partner who cares as much about their business as they do. That’s the bottom line.
