Duda Farm Fresh Foods’ has enjoyed a long and successful history that its staff is happy to share. Founded in 1909 by Andrew Duda shortly after he moved to the U.S. in search of the American dream, the company has been growing and evolving since. Duda’s vision was to provide people with farm fresh products at an affordable price and that tasted as if they were grown in their very own gardens.

That vision continues today and has passed through five generations of Duda family members. Providing freshness, flavor and quality products—still at affordable prices—remains its primary goal. The company continues to strive for excellence and continues to keep the family’s farming business running strong.

In addition to celery, Duda Farm Fresh Foods grows, markets and ships numerous citrus products, leafy greens, cabbage and more.

“Showcasing produce grown in the Southwestern United States and Mexico applies strongly to our company,” Sloate pointed out. “Duda has a large growing operation in Arizona, and so we stand firmly behind this statement.”
