Maglio McAllen, a division of the Fresh Group Ltd. located in McAllen, Texas, now includes consolidation among the services it provides for produce distributors nationwide. Located in the heart of South Texas’s produce hub, Maglio’s consolidation services help streamline FOB shipping efficiencies.
Using its own fleet to consolidate purchase orders around the greater McAllen area, Maglio ensures the temperature cold chain is kept throughout the process from pickup, to monitored storage at its facility, to loading on the final truck.
Utilizing the team’s knowledge of produce, Maglio is able to properly store produce. Bringing more than 20 years of sourcing, sales, operations and brokerage experience, Eric Schriever, director of McAllen sales and operations, ensures a seamless operation when dealing with FOB loading from Rio Grande Valley.
“With all the services we are offering it puts us in a position where customers look at Maglio McAllen as a one-stop program for all their needs in the RGV. Our focus is on customer service and helping our customers with their most challenging problems. The consolidation service complements our complete line of Mexican produce we already handle,” he said.
The company provides a direct link between growers of fresh fruits and vegetables and retail, foodservice and industrial customers. Its team focuses primarily on products imported from Mexico and can deliver straight from the field to the customer. The 30,000-square-foot refrigerated warehouse facility in Texas is designed to be Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point certified, audited through the Global Food Safety Initiative and Produce Traceability Initiative compliant.
Maglio McAllen also offers value-added programs such as private labeling, custom packaging and inventory management.
