Dedicated Buyers, Specialized Handling

Harvest Sensations

Costa is affiliated with Harvest Sensations, an importer of specialty produce items. Their bi-coastal procurement teams in Los Angeles and Miami gives us a great advantage that enables us to provide a wide variety of specialty, conventional and organic produce. With our established and trusted grower network spanning the U.S., Mexico, Central and South America, you can be sure we’re sourcing and importing the best ingredients possible.


Our Boston based procurement team maintains strong relationships with a large family of local farmers. These partnerships go beyond basic product sourcing and replenishment. Our team actively works with our farm partners and customers on demand planning, crop selection and menu development.

Specialized Handling

Handling fruit & vegetables is not a one size fits all scenario. Maintaining the highest quality for peak flavor and performance is essential and requires expertise in this area.

Ripening Rooms & Temperature Controlled Zones

Tomatoes, avocados, bananas and melons are some examples of items that are closely monitored for color, ripeness, and sugar levels. Accordingly, we have developed specific handling protocols and temperature zones for delicate produce items and the needs of our customers.


Quality assurance for these more delicate items may also require hand selection and specialized packaging for less than case items. Clams shell containers, totes and bubble wrap are often utilized for maintaining product integrity. As weather conditions vary, you may also see insulating materials and or cooler packs utilized for temperature control as well.
