“If there’s a hall of fame in produce, my father would be Babe Ruth,” J.M Procacci said at the time.

It still holds true today, he said.

J.M. Procacci is not the only Procacci offspring to play a role in the family business. His sister, Rita Neczypor, is a key member of the marketing staff.No longer just a repacker, the volume of fresh produce and flowers marketed by Procacci Bros. annually is approaching 300,000 tons, and the company has more than 12,500 employees.
