Pacific Coast Fruit Company opened its doors for business on October 31, 1977 as the smallest wholesale produce distributor in Portland. Immigrant founder Emil Nemarnik and his wife Kathleen mortaged their home and hoped for the best when starting their new company. Emil felt there was room for a produce company founded on fair business principles.
Today Pacific Coast Fruit is one of the largest produce distributors on the West Coast, with over 300 employees in Oregon and Washington. Within three years of opening its doors Pacific Coast Fruit earned the distinction of a national trading member, and currently holds a XXXX Blue Book rating and a **** Red Book rating.
Originally located in a 10,000 square foot building in the heart of Portland's central East Side industrial district, we are now in a modern 87,000 square foot facility just down the street from our original location. Our new building is 100& temperature controlled, and we have an on-site state-of-the-art pre-cut value added processing facility. Our fleet, which started as two small delivery trucks, now has grown to over sixty refrigerated trucks ranging in size from small city trucks to tractor-trailers.
As important as a new building, processing facility, modern fleet of trucks, and information systems are to our history and our growth; our people and leadership based on our founders principles will continue to shape our destiny
