Pacific Coast Fruit Company’s distribution capabilities and King Harvest’s expertise in food manufacturing sets the stage for future growth and opportunities.

Portland, Oregon – (June 22, 2023) – Pacific Coast Fruit Company BB #:100777, one of the Northwest’s largest independent produce distributors, has acquired King Harvest Hummus, a Portland-based producer of hummus that also operates a drive-thru at its manufacturing and wholesale facility on Morrison Street. 

With an existing distribution operation out of Oregon, King Harvest Hummus is a long-standing locally owned business built on the values of quality products, honesty, and customer loyalty. These shared values with Pacific Coast Fruit Co. made the blending of the two companies a natural fit.  Pacific Coast Fruit Company’s distribution capabilities and King Harvest’s expertise in food manufacturing sets the stage for future growth and opportunities.  Pacific Coast Fruit Co. is excited to promote the King Harvest brand and operate as a single provider offering a comprehensive line of produce and specialty items with superior customer service. The acquisition was finalized on April 22, 2023.

“For many years, we’ve been impressed with King Harvest Hummus and the reputation the company has earned for great people, dedicated service to customers and quality products,” said David Nemarnik, CEO of Pacific Coast Fruit Company. “We’re excited about the future of both brands and the opportunities that lie ahead as we begin to work together.”

Twyla Beckner, partner at King Harvest Hummus, will still be involved in the business and focused on growth of the brand. David Brugato, a third generation Pacific Coast Fruit Company family member and Sales Executive with the company, has transitioned to Director of King Harvest Natural Foods, primarily responsible for operational initiatives for the company.

“Over the past few years, we’ve worked with Pacific Coast Fruit Company to help distribute our hummus to southern Oregon in Ashland, Medford, Corvallis, and Roseburg, and to Washington in Mercer Island,” Says Beckner. “They were an invaluable and reliable partner to help us grow and reach the demands of our customers, so it was a natural progression to join forces when we were looking to change ownership. So here we go! Or shall I say, here we come to your local grocery stores! I’m excited for the opportunity to grow the business and the King Harvest brand.”

King Harvest Hummus can be found at their drive thru at 1502 Morrison Street, Portland, OR 97214, as well as many grocery stores in Portland. The staff is small but work hard to make and deliver the Freshest Hummus in Portland.
