Everyone likes anniversaries—they show that what’s movin’ and shakin’ is definitely workin’! Celebrating it’s 40th anniversary is Central Coast grower, packer, and shipper of fresh, safe, and innovative produce Gold Coast Packing. Longtime friends Ron Burk and Bob Espinola began their business venture in 1978, when their company started out as a Western veggie and strawberry grower/shipper. From there, the company has expanded into both conventional and organic vegetables and herbs. Customers, continued development, and the addition of product lines to meet their customers needs have been of the utmost priority for the company over the duration of its 40 years and counting.

“To have thrived and prospered in business over a 40-year span proves that we have been able to do things right and meet our customers’ expectations. However, none of this would have been possible without the support of many talented employees and partners over those 40 years,” said President and Co-Founder Ron Burk, in a recent press release. “As I look ahead to our future, I am confident that we are positioned to continue to provide excellent service to our customers with innovative products. Gold Coast’s success is due to the dedicated people who come to work here every day, sharing the vision to be the best we can be.”

Some of the company’s best known items include the award-winning Caulifornia™ Riced Vegetable products, as well as its washed and ready-to-use broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, spinach, cilantro, kale, salad kits, and value-added fresh products.

If you’re wondering how the company is ringing in its ruby year milestone, you can look to its new logo that will be displayed throughout the 40th anniversary year. In addition to the celebratory look, the company will hold a few events to honor the landmark.

Congratulations to Gold Coast on the momentous achievement. We wish you every success in your endeavors moving forward!
