About Us

Sam Okun Produce began in 1914 with a one-horse cart and a very determined young man with an intuitive, entrepreneurial spirit! Five generations later, we continue to grow by combining the best of our Old World values with today’s advances in product availability and technology. We remain committed to supplying our customers with year-round availability of seasonal, specialty, and whenever possible, local produce.

Today, Sam’s grandson Fred Okun, CEO, along with Fred’s daughter Shelly Okun, President, follow in the footsteps of his father, Max Okun. We are a team of professionals who adhere to Sam Okun’s mission of providing the highest quality produce, delivered in the most efficient manner, at a competitive price, while maintaining the respect and trust of our customers. Completing our management team are Kenny Smith, General Manager; Tonya Harding, Controller; Nick Adams, Warehouse Manager (evening); James Escobar, Warehouse Manager (day); and Sam’s great-great grandchildren Josh and Adam Goldberg, members of The Board of Directors.

We are proud that we have matured into a woman owned company (WBE certified), consistently score in the excellent range for our Third Party Audit by NSF International, and have maintained our family ownership!
