If you love real food from Oliver’s, you have to check out Oliver’s Own Fresh Cut Produce!
In the summer of 2009, Leo Escobar and Oliver’s produce coordinator Michael Peterson received the most incredible, delicious, and sweet seedless watermelon from Yosemite Farms in Manteca. With their only sample tray broken, they needed a creative solution to introduce the tasty fruit to our customers. They grabbed a Deli container and filled it up with samples, then decided to pack up a few more for sale. They packed their water tray to the top with ice and inserted about 20 containers, hand marking them each with a price. In a few hours, the containers were gone, and Oliver’s Cut Fruit program was born! We changed the name to Oliver’s Fresh Cut Produce a few years back, but rest assured – it’s the same great produce as it was at the start!
Nowadays, Oliver’s Cut Produce program accounts for up to 10% of the entire sales of our Produce department. Over the years, the program has evolved and expanded to include everything from a dinner kits to yogurt parfaits, and plenty of vegetables have been added to the mix as well! With only a few exceptions, our cut produce is hand-selected by our teams of employees, and every store cuts their own produce daily. This way, we know our customers always receive the highest quality produce possible, and our teams are always hard at work to keep our shelves stocked and fresh. We also prepare our cut produce separately from all our other house-prepared foods, so there’s no chance of cross-contamination between products. Whether you’re looking to skip the prep for dinner or if you’re just in need of a healthy snack on-the-go, Oliver’s Fresh Cut Produce is the perfect way to get more fruits and veggies without any effort.
