Delightful Quality Produce, an importer of tomatoes, corn, peppers, and watermelons from Mexico, has signed a new multi-year contract with CHEP, a provider of pallet and container pooling systems. The company transports its Delightful Quality brand produce from farms in northern Mexico to supermarkets and wholesalers across the United States and Canada on CHEP pallets.
The importer moved from limited-use, non-pooled pallets to the CHEP pallet pooling program primarily to address quality issues and to improve customer service. It also wanted to increase productivity and improve the management of its pallet system.
Jose Felix, partner and sales manager at Delightful Quality Produce, said, “The CHEP program is excellent because we don’t get any damaged pallets, and there’s never a mess to clean up from wood falling off pallets.”
Mike Pooley, CHEP USA senior vice-president of sales and customer operations, said, “Delightful Quality Produce is a great example of an importer that has grown rapidly because of its ability to meet its retail and wholesale customers’ demands efficiently. CHEP is proud to be playing a role in enhancing the Delightful Quality Produce supply chain.”
