Our Produce

From top quality growers in the United States and abroad


All of our produce is purchased from top quality growers not only in the United States, but throughout the World.



Cheney Export ships our produce using the most stringent requirements in the industry to insure our customers receive only the freshest produce in the best condition possible.

The biggest challenge foodservice distributors face when shipping produce is managing the freshness of the product. This is especially true of produce coming from the West Coast of the United States. Because Cheney Brothers has such a large local customer base, it gives us an advantage other export companies do not have. This advantage allows us to immediately deliver the very ripe produce to our local customers and utilize the less ripe produce for exporting.



We know from experience that sometimes even the freshest produce is not in the best condition for exporting. Therefore, Cheney Brothers requires our warehouse staff to physically open and inspect 3 cases of each product to insure it is in perfect condition before shipping.

As a further guarantee to you, our staff diligently photographs the product during their inspection to document the condition of your produce prior to loading. We also require all produce shipments to have ethylene filters inside the containers to absorb the ethylene gas. Ethylene gas shortens the shelf life and degrades the quality of the produce. The Ethylene filters we provide help to prevent this and can be further used in the customers warehouse upon delivery.
