What We Do

We are building a food company for the 21st century, helping to transform how food is sourced, made and delivered to consumers. Our business is built around ideas, with a uniquely flexible manufacturing environment that allows for production across food categories and platforms. 

Our Approach

Fresca Foods is resourced across the supply chain to deliver turnkey innovation and manufacturing services to our partners. Built on a legacy as a natural foods manufacturing and supply chain company, we have grown to be an owner and operator of several high growth, category leading brands, and innovation partner to some of the world’s largest CPG companies.

Owned Consumer Brands

We own and operate fast growing challenger brands. Our industry experts are leaders in marketing, sales and brand management. We’re on the ground with a finger on the pulse of Natural & Organic trends, consumer insights, and market demand.

External Innovation

Inspired by design thinking, we’ve developed a reliable and repeatable process for innovation, creating leading-edge food products for global food giants. We leverage consumer insights, cross functional expertise, and rapid prototyping to take concept to shelf in 6 to 9 months.

Manufacturing & Supply Chain Management

We operate a flexible, nimble, and scalable manufacturing platform that is designed to align with the size of the project and quickly grow with demand, supported by a world class food safety, quality, engineering, sourcing, and logistics teams.

Who We Are

We are a diverse and passionate team dedicated to a shared purpose and strong desire to grow.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to nourish the lives of those we serve: our employees, our customers, our community, and our planet. This is our “why” – the reason we do what we do and the thing that gets us going every day. We make food, which is nourishment, but we also aspire to nourish the mind and the spirits of the people whom we work with and for each and every day.

Live Our Values

Our core values are integrity, collaboration, respect, embrace change, accountability, and tenacity.

Develop Our People

We strive to create opportunities for growth, empowerment, and meaningful jobs for our team.
