Southern Specialties was founded in 1990 by Robert Colescott, President and CEO of the company. Our mission was to provide the finest restaurants and hotels in the nation with the best quality specialty produce. After years of success as a grower and supplier to the foodservice industry, we expanded our product line to include a variety of offerings for the retail sector.
The Southern Selects product line was developed to meet the needs of today's educated consumer. We control all aspects of growing, importing, processing and distributing our expanding menu of specialty fruits and vegetables from the best farms in the Americas.
The foundation of Southern Specialties resides in the quality of people and businesses that make up our culture and enterprise. As a company, its rewarding to have traveled so far and have such great visions for the future. We look forward to continuing our enduring partnerships, and providing the freshest and most delicious, healthful fruits and vegetables to our valued customers for years to come.
