We are Louisiana Fresh, a New Orleans based wholesale produce company created by combining two of the oldest and most established fresh produce companies in Louisiana, the former Cusimano and Cuccia Produce Companies. To us, that means carrying on traditions started by our fathers and grandfathers. To you, our customers, our longevity and history means that we know fresh produce, how important it is to your kitchen and what it means to have the best product to you exactly when you need it.
2005 and “Katrina” stopped most New Orleans businesses, ours included, in their tracks. Up until that time, the Cusimano and Cuccia Produce companies operated separate successful New Orleans based wholesale produce companies. Pre-Katrina talk of a merger between the two companies became a post-storm reality when we decided that the two companies combined could re-emerge stronger and better suited to serve the city of New Orleans and surrounding areas. As the city continues to rebuild, Louisiana Fresh continues to expand and to find new and innovative ways to connect with and service the local food industry.
This is an exiting time for the food industry in New Orleans and Louisiana. There is growth in almost every neighborhood and we cheer the success of all of our customers, from the new corner neighborhood restaurants to the four star establishments. We deeply value our relationships with chefs, restaurant owners and kitchen managers. Our goal, bottom line, is to continue to offer to you the freshest and highest quality produce available.
We look forward to working with you and are always available and interested to discuss the particular needs of your kitchen.
