government regulation, etc. and the need for greater investment in facilities and equipment, I feel that partnering with Adams Produce will provide the resources for a more dynamic market presence going forward and most importantly add value to our customers,” explained Darrin St. Clair, who founded the company in 1994. “I am proud of the business we have created and the team we have assembled at St. Clair’s and feel confident that joining Adams will allow for additional growth opportunities for all involved.”
