We offer a range of services to help you optimize your food business

At S.H. Blackwell, we work to provide the options and personalized programs that let you focus your time and effort where it counts – on your core business. Every order of frozen fruits and vegetables starts with a discussion of your needs: from the product application, to your target price points, to the volume you require, your time frame, and end destination.

Then, we get to work on your behalf.

Whether you need product from a specific growing region, custom branded packaging, a unique package size, a specific product presentation, or certified fair trade or organic produce, we work with our suppliers and partners to source what you need.

We can also handle your transportation and customs clearance and processing. Our coast-to-coast distribution network across North America ensures that we can deliver anywhere on the continent – or ship your order overseas. Need a mixed truckload or partial truckload? No problem!

Global food sourcing ensures reliable supply

SHBlackwell Services Illustration source circle

Our extensive network of suppliers in Canada, the United States, Central and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa ensures that we can provide a globally diverse and reliable supply of product at competitive prices – along with a range of options for quality and product presentation.

Diverse global supply networks have become increasingly important as severe weather events become more frequent. If one region experiences crop failures or supply difficulties, our team can quickly adapt and offer alternate sourcing solutions. Our wide network also allows us to offer alternatives to customers who prefer to deal only with specific regions.

Our customized vendor management programs allow you to schedule the volume, delivery schedule, and mix of products you want to receive. Instead of having to place a large order for a particular product, you can place smaller orders for a range of products, or increase your order to meet demand – our packing sizes range from 4 oz. to 1300 lbs.

We manage your inventory until you need it – just give us 24 hours notice, and you can pick up your order or have it delivered. For our foodservice clients, it’s an option that allows them to manage their inventory costs with maximum flexibility and creativity in the kitchen.
