Our company began in 1937 amidst the stands of the Washington Street Produce Market in downtown Manhattan and was relocated to the Hunts Point Terminal Market in the Bronx in 1965 where Salvatore Vacca established it as one of the leading produce distributors in New York.
Fresh Italian Chestnuts were the staple of the company for decades, until in 1999, Nick Pacia joined the company and began an expansion that saw the inclusion of a variety of products such as kiwifruit, garlic, fresh figs and citrus, as well as continuing to offer the traditional items like dried fruits and nuts.
Today, Trucco is one of the biggest importers of a vast variety of branded and unbranded produce from around the world, with distribution centers in New York, New Jersey and most recently, California. Trucco’s brands include: KiwiStar, TruStar, Fresco, and Naturi.
We strive to meet the demands of the ever-changing marketplace and provide the consumer with the best choices in fresh and healthy produce for their diet.
We are committed to providing logistical support, maintain and update our infrastructure to import and distribute the very best products from coast to coast.
We search the globe to create strategic alliances directly with the growers who meet our very high standards. Our strong partnerships allow us to be involved in the growing process and guarantee the quality of our products.
