Catania was founded in 1929 by Michael Leonard Catania. He was the first man to import lettuce into Canada in the wintertime. No one had ever seen greens in the winter season before! The family-run company maintains its small-business charm and integrity, while leading the industry with innovation that helps Catania remain at the top of the field. We believe that one-on-one relationships are crucial to the success of the company, and especially our clients’ businesses. From our farmers and shippers, to your shelves, every step of the process is carefully monitored and executed. We know the taste of success. This success comes from working hand-in-hand with our employees and our clients to ensure that the finest fruit products are grown, packaged, shipped and of course sold.
What sets us apart? Our ability to deliver high quality fruit, year-round, create and provide customized packaging, while continually meeting the delivery requirements of our customers.
