H. Brooks and Company Owner Phillip Brooks Discusses the Success of His Produce Distributing Company in an Interview With Business Review USA

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - February 17, 2011) - In an interview with Business Review USA, H. Brooks and Company leader and owner, Phillip Brooks discusses the success of his company.

The kind of freshness H. Brooks and Company delivers requires extreme speed. Once the produce is picked, the trucks become warehouses on wheels -- racing to the Company's distribution center daily so they can deliver produce that's twice as fresh.

Once its fruit and vegetables are delivered, the Company makes sure to keep them at peak flavor and freshness.

The operation is intended to mimic that of nature so that produce is virtually unaware it has left the fields. This unique and proprietary expertise not only ensures exceptional safety and quality -- it actually slows the effects of time so that produce looks, feels, smells and tastes fresher.

"We're working on implementing a form of Lean and Kaizen with the Associate Dean of the University of Minnesota Business School, the Carlson School of Management," says Brooks in the article. "He's teaching us the principles and the different traffic routes on the different aspects of the business. We're learning as we go the principles of Lean and Kaizen and we've been on some field trips to visit some of the businesses with the best practices and some of them have even visited us to see how we're running things."
