Brooks Tropicals has grown to become the premier grower, packer and shipper of tropical produce grown in Florida and around the Caribbean.
Farming more than 4,000 acres, Brooks Tropicals harvests more than 70 percent of what the firm sells.
In an area called the Redlands just south of Miami, the company grows SlimCado® avocados. On the Florida west coast, the company grows starfruit.
The company's Belize operations grows, packs and ships Caribbean Red® papayas. Twenty other tropical fruits and vegetables are imported into the North American market from fifteen countries in Central and South America.
More than 1,000 people work for Brooks in a wide range of occupations, from field operations and packing facilities to sales and software development.
Brooks' employees work in facilities— fields, shipping docks and packinghouses in Florida and Belize—that continually receive outstanding marks in food safety from a leading third-party auditor.
