First, A Word About Our Logo

"The Costa logo memorializes our founder, the late Manuel Costa Sr. Manny Sr. was raised in the Azores Islands where, at a young age the responsibility of providing for his mother and eight siblings fell squarely on his shoulders.

The young Manny would await the pre-dawn farmers and fisherman and buy their produce, then scurry off to sell the goods to inland villagers. The logo reminds us of his quest for a better life for all as well as our humble beginnings in food distribution.

"Applying New World Technologies to Old World Values, we seek the same today and every day" - Manuel R. Costa
