All of our fresh produce is sourced by our Produce Buyer, David La Mantia directly from our Ontario Growers or from the actual importer of that product. No middlemen!
La Mantia’s contacts our Ontario Growers the day before we meet them at the Ontario Food Terminal so that our Ontario Fruits and Vegetables can be picked and packed fresh.
Many of our relationships with our importers and growers go back many years. These personal relationships with our suppliers ensures La Mantia’s receives favoured customer status.
We travel to the Ontario Food Terminal in the early morning so that we can transport the fresh-picked produce back to our store. David La Mantia then visits the stalls operated by over 25 importers and 300 Ontario Growers to personally select and buy fresh fruits, vegetables and plants for their Lindsay Store. The fresh fruits and vegetables are then delivered to La Mantia’s waiting transport truck. Once all the fresh produce has been loaded, we head directly back to our store to stock our shelves with the best that Ontario, Canada and the World has to offer in fresh fruits, vegetables and plants. No warehouses or middlemen! This process takes place over a matter of only a few hours to ensure maximum freshness for La Mantia’s Customers.
Due to the fact that we eliminate middlemen in our procurement process we are able to offer you superior quality fresh produce at lower prices.
FOR SEVEN CONSECUTIVE YEARS, WE HAVE BEEN VOTED THE AREA’S FAVOURITE SUPPLIER OF FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES IN THE KAWARTHA LAKES THIS WEEK READERS’ SELECT AWARDS.
