Food redistributor Dot Foods Inc has added Del Monte retail products to its offering. Del Monte manufactures Fruit Naturals, which is a refrigerated fruit cup line, as well as a variety of pet foods and snacks, fruits and vegetables, tomato products, and broth.
Del Monte brands that will now be supplied by Dot Foods include Milo’s Kitchen, Del Monte Fruit, Del Monte Vegetables, Contadina, and College Inn.
Thanks to this new partnership with Dot Foods, Del Monte distributor customers may purchase Del Monte products with no minimum. In addition, Dot Foods’ weekly deliveries with a two- to four-day lead time enable customers to respond faster to retailers’ needs, while at the same time increasing inventory turns.
“We are pleased to add Del Monte’s retail products to our ever-expanding list of suppliers,” said Lee Leffers, Dot Foods senior business development manager. “With the wide variety of brands and categories the Del Monte line offers, we are certain that our customers will be satisfied with the addition of these products.”
Recently, Dot Foods expanded its Mt Sterling IL warehouse to add capacity for new manufacturers, as well as additional items for existing manufacturers. The firm added 136,000 square feet and reconfigured its current dry warehouse.
Dot Foods carries 100,000 products from 700 food industry manufacturers and is a leading US food redistributor. With Dot Transportation, it sells and delivers foodservice, convenience, retail, vending, equipment, and supplies to distributors in all 50 states. Dot Foods operates eight distribution centers in Mt Sterling, Modesto CA, Vidalia GA, Burley ID, Cambridge City IN, Williamsport MD, Liverpool NY, and Ardmore OK.
