Company History

In 1935, Jack Price started Price Distributing Co. as an export company.  His primary focus was exporting apples and pears to Europe.  Throughout the following years he developed some domestic business and had numerous connections with key people in some of the larger cities of the US.  In 1950, Jack Price acquired Gleed Cold Storage and Packing Company.  Shortly thereafter he passed away and his son Harry Price left college to come home and run the operation.  In 1961, the entity incorporated as Price Cold Storage & Packing Co., Inc.  Harry Price passed away in 1981 and his son Robert (Bob) Price took over as the third generation president.  He continues to run the company today.
