An Evolving Legacy

FSS has always strived to remain at the forefront of the industry, working diligently with retail, industrial, club stores, national accounts, and foodservice customers. This commitment ensures that these entities can navigate the complexities of their supply chains with ease. With each passing year, we continues to push our boundaries further, offering an expansive product range that caters to the dynamic purchasing needs of our customers. This vast array of options is made possible through the robust backing of our parent companies, Superior Foods and Inn Foods, as well as a multitude of manufacturers who trust FSS to be their “sales force” in the marketplace.

The FSS Advantage

From meticulous forecasting to adept inventory management, and from rigorous quality control to efficient procurement – FSS is a one-stop solution. But beyond these services, it’s our company’s unique understanding of the food industry that makes us stand out.

The Fresh vs Frozen Debate

🥦 Frozen Foods:
✅ Harvested at peak ripeness: Higher nutrients
✅ Maintains nutrients for months
✅ Economical & safe preparation

🍅 Fresh Foods:
❗ Harvested earlier: Lower nutrients
❗ Nutrient loss starts in 3 days
❗ Less yield due to trim & spoilage

It’s evident that frozen foods, with their prolonged nutrient retention and economic benefits, present an enticing proposition. Besides, with fresh produce yielding less than 50% post-trim and spoilage, the financial implications are amplified.
