At City Wide Produce, we love to engage and learn from our clients so we can maximize the quality and freshness of the produce we deliver. We’re proud to work with growers across North America to get the freshest produce into the right hands here in Western Canada.
Setting a fresher benchmark
Connecting local businesses with the freshest produce from certified growers
We Support Success with Communication
We understand the industry and how much can change season to season due to weather and climate situations. That’s why we work closely with our growers to understand exactly what is happening with specific produce yields each year, so we can pass on important information and excellent product to our buying clients! Communication helps all of us grow together.
We Value Our Clients’ Time
Our growers strive to grow the freshest and best produce in the industry. This means they need a produce supplier that can get product to buyers when it is in top quality. At City Wide, we act quickly to ensure this happens. We provide support in inspecting the produce for quality and freshness, keeping an open dialogue with our clients so we can guarantee excellent product every time. We have Ke2 temperature controlled coolers and a Reefer Truck with a full refrigeration unit to securely and safely store and ship produce at optimal freshness.
We Get the Freshest Produce to Buyers
We listen carefully to the needs of our buyers, so we can connect them with the best produce. As a company with a diverse background as grocers, suppliers and wholesalers, we know how to engage new buyers across Western Canada. We recognize that quality, price and volume are the key to expanding to new markets and work with growers AND buyers to create new opportunities.
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
