Pacific Coast Fruit Company, one of the Northwest’s largest independent produce distributors, has acquired King Harvest Hummus, a Portland-based producer of hummus that also operates a drive-thru at its manufacturing and wholesale facility on Morrison Street.
With an existing distribution operation out of Oregon, King Harvest Hummus is a long-standing locally owned business built on the values of quality products, honesty, and customer loyalty. These shared values with Pacific Coast Fruit Co. made the blending of the two companies a natural fit. Pacific Coast Fruit Company’s distribution capabilities and King Harvest’s expertise in food manufacturing sets the stage for future growth and opportunities. Pacific Coast Fruit Co. is excited to promote the King Harvest brand and operate as a single provider offering a comprehensive line of produce and specialty items with superior customer service. The acquisition was finalized on April 22, 2023.
“For many years, we’ve been impressed with King Harvest Hummus and the reputation the company has earned for great people, dedicated service to customers and quality products,” said David Nemarnik, CEO of Pacific Coast Fruit Company. “We’re excited about the future of both brands and the opportunities that lie ahead as we begin to work together.”
