Get to Know Us

CarbAmericas was established in 1993 with the intention to bridge the gap between growing regions in the United States by sourcing fruits and vegetables from Central and South America when the Northern Hemisphere was lacking production. By doing so, CarbAmericas is able to provide fresh products to its customers on a year-round basis. Today, as our programs and capacity continually expand, so does our team.
