Wholesale Fresh Fruit & Produce
Regatta Tropicals, Ltd. is a California wholesale fresh fruit corporation owned solely by Steve Matych and his wife Teresa Barnes-Matych. The fruit company was formed in 1992 and was an offshoot of another company Steve formed in 1983 called Coast-to-Coast Produce Inc. Regatta’s main office is located in Grover Beach, California where we have a full-time staff of 10 employees. With operations on both the West and East Coasts, Regatta will employ up to 180 people during peak periods when repacking and restyling of the fruit products is necessary.
Regatta markets fruit for up to 20 California growers, farms 60 acres of black mission figs in Maricopa, Arizona, and imports fruit from Chile, Peru, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, and Italy. The fruit is distributed to chain stores, food service companies, and wholesalers across the United States and Canada. In addition, Regatta has exported fruit over the years to Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Costa Rica, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Europe.
Regatta is also a packer of fresh fruit and has invested in sophisticated packing equipment on both the East and West Coasts. Citrus, cherries, and persimmons are just a few of the commodities that we provide packing services for. For packing rates and more information about packing services, please contact Steve at 805-473-1320.
Lastly, Regatta Tropicals is considered one of the premier marketers of Fuyu and Hachiya persimmons in California! Not only are we one of the largest volume marketers in California, we are also revered as packing several of the cleanest labels in the business. The largest percentage of acreage exists between Wasco, California and Fresno, California with growers located also in the Yuba City and Gridley, California areas. With over 500,000 packages produced between October and December, we can easily be the one and only call you need to make on this unique commodity!
