You Grow, We Grow
We provide exceptional service to buyers across Western Canada
The retail industry is fast-paced and incredibly specific when it comes to what produce is used. At City Wide Produce, we know that only produce of a certain type, colour, size and quality will do, as owners Gopal and Fazleen worked in the food retail industry in Whistler for several years! We understand that every fruit, vegetable or herb that makes it to a plate must be high quality and as fresh as possible. We work to support all of your specific produce needs through each changing season.
We’re here to help you flourish in the retail industry!

As fellow wholesalers, we really get wholesale produce from our experience working in Vancouver’s ‘Produce Alley’ back in 2007. We know that consumers are looking for a competitive price, quality product and the freshest, most delicious produce they can find. We love to support our wholesale buyers through timely delivery, reliable communication and invaluable education about our produce. We partner with you to create a personalized buying program to meet the needs of your consumers.

Yes we are! We worked diligently to earn our Canada GAP Certification in 2018 showing that we take food safety seriously, a representation of our commitment to providing our clients with produce that is safe, fresh and of the highest quality.
Certification is the term used by CanadaGAP to describe the determination by a qualified authority that the supplier meets the standard and that its food safety program is being maintained on an ongoing basis. This involves having a third party auditor from the Certification Body visit the operation, review the food safety manual(s) and related records, interview the operator and staff, and assess the company’s conformance to the CanadaGAP Audit Checklist. Since the Audit Checklist covers all crop groupings, multi-crop operations may be able to cover their entire production in one audit, depending on which activities are occurring at the time of the audit. Those who pass the audit are certified to the program.
Certification indicates that the operation has a system of procedures to minimize the risk of contamination to product. The Certification Body certifies processes, not products. The auditor gathers evidence to attest to the ongoing maintenance of the food safety system, rather than simply gaining a snapshot at a given point in time
