Our History

Alpine Fresh, Inc was founded in January of 1988 by two long time friends, Jose Sanchez and Walter Yager. Their vision was to bridge the gap between the growers of fresh fruits and vegetables in Latin America and the consumers in the United States. The company has grown from two people, one pallet jack, a 250 square foot office, to a 50,000 square foot corporate head quarters in Miami, Florida, with over 4,000 employees worldwide. Alpine has operations in six different countries and sales on five different continents.
