about

Partners Committed to Fresh Food Excellence

In 1991, six independent foodservice distributors joined together to achieve a competitive advantage through consolidated purchasing, collective marketing and networking. The founders called the initiative “Produce Regional Operators Advancing Cooperative Trade.” Now, most people just know us as PRO*ACT.

Today, the PRO*ACT family is more than 50 members strong and our collective power is impressive:

  • 71 distribution centers
  • 3.5 million square feet of warehouse space
  • 1,950 distribution trucks
  • 2.6 million miles of coast-to-coast distribution

Beyond the Numbers

The majority of our distributors are family-owned businesses operating under third-or fourth generation leadership. They have roots in their communities, are committed to quality and possess deep industry knowledge that they’re proud to share. Whether at the local, regional or national account level, the PRO*ACT network helps to simplify and streamline the challenging fresh food category.


The Perfect Order

At PRO*ACT, all of our distributors are committed to achieving the perfect order. That means delivering the right product at the right time, meeting the right specs and all at the right price. It’s a lofty goal, but that’s how we achieve excellence.

We back this commitment to excellence with data. We measure our performance, monitor it and continually work to improve it. And we share detailed reports and metrics on items like price verification and fill rate.

Bottom line, we are committed to our customers’ success. We have a track record of doing whatever it takes to meet and exceed their needs.

We look forward to having you join the PRO*ACT family.
