Andy Boy

Andy Boy

Andy Boy has a rich his­tory as an indus­try trend-​setter, not a fol­lower. From the day the com­pany was founded by Stephen and Andrew D’Arrigo, two immi­grants from Messina, Sicily, inno­va­tion has been its hall­mark. Andy Boy cus­tomers can con­fi­dently look to them for excel­lence in every­thing they do, from seed research and devel­op­ment to entirely new approaches to pack­ag­ing, pack­ing, and even shipping.

With third gen­er­a­tion D’Arrigo fam­ily mem­bers at the helm of their West Coast oper­a­tions, the tra­di­tions of being the very best in the busi­ness emanate from the top and are car­ried out by their ded­i­cated fam­ily of almost 2000 employees.

Andy “Andy Boy” D’Arrigo is 92 years old and has retired but remains active by com­ing into the office from time to time. John D’Arrigo serves as President/​CEO and Chair­man of the Board for D’Arrigo Bros. Co., of CA.

Andy Boy Broc­coli, Broc­coli Rabe, Cau­li­flower, Fen­nel, Romaine Hearts, Cac­tus Pears and Nopal­i­tos are the company’s main­stays, but Andy Boy is also able to pro­vide a full scope of pro­duce needs and con­sol­i­da­tion oppor­tu­ni­ties with an extra­or­di­nary level of service.
