Bay Cities Produce Company was founded in 1947 by Albert Del Masso and was managed by him and his son Steve until Al’s passing in 2014. Steve has been involved since he was 7 years old, accompanying his father on his daily produce route.
These humble beginnings created a family business that was to become the foundation of what Bay Cities Produce is today. Albert Del Masso’s traditions, ideals and philanthropy still continue with his son Steve at the helm of our thriving company. Today everyone at Bay Cities Produce strives to preserve the company’s rich heritage.
