When Max Lipman planted his first tomato in the 1930’s, he had the modest goal of simply providing for his family. Since the first seed was planted, the times – and even our company’s name – have changed, but the core values have always remained the same: building lasting relationships with our customers, being responsible with our natural resources and the health and wellbeing of our people and families. Following the same fundamental practices Max did more than 80 years ago, Lipman has grown into the largest field tomato grower in North America – a title we don’t take lightly. As your trusted industry partner, Lipman ensures that fresh and flavorful produce is available when you need it.
At Lipman, it’s our goal to be North America’s dependable source of fresh tomatoes and vegetables. Using strategically located farms and a seamless packing and distribution network, we create the freshest solutions. From seed to delivery, Lipman is with you every step of the way. Top down, we take pride in our ability to deliver fresh produce year-round, ensuring that your needs – and your customer’s demands – are always met.
To ensure availability of quality produce 24/7/365, Lipman is geographically diverse. With more than 30 locations to farm, pack and ship produce throughout North America, we grow year-round in optimal conditions that allow for the highest yield per plant. Another benefit: it cuts down on miles driven, reducing both transportation costs and environmental effects. Geographic diversity also helps us support local sourcing programs.
