Expanding 1964

Pocono Produce Company expands product lines in 1960s.
The Sixties and Seventies

In 1964 Pocono Produce Company added groceries to its expanding line of fresh and frozen foods by acquiring a canned-only distributor and continued to enlarge its freezer capacity. The Company joined Frosty Acres of Atlanta, GA, a nationwide cooperative of independent foodservice distributors, in 1966. Paper products and janitorial supplies were added to the inventory in 1976, making Pocono Produce a full-service distributor. Again, in 1978, an additional freezer was constructed and the offices were expanded. In 1977, a new dry grocery warehouse was built. Ahead of its time, in 1978 Pocono Produce computerized the entire operation, allowing for expanded service to customers and more efficient operations.
