In 1986, Markon introduced the first foodservice-specific brand for produce called Markon First Crop. This industry-changing move was followed by many more: the first iceless products (starting with broccoli in 1989); the first recyclable, staple-free cartons (in 1994); the first pre-cut, value-added brand (Ready-Set-Serve in 1996); and the first to initiate a comprehensive food safety program (1997). Every year, we continue to introduce new products, time-saving cuts, and innovative packaging based on the needs of our member and operator customers.
