Dinuba, Calif.-based grower-shipper King Fresh Produce LLC has added to its staff, said Keith Wilson, owner.

“We have recently added people who previously worked with AMC North America in their field department and sales department with the idea that we would increase our volume,” he said.

The company also increased its California grape volume by 20%, Wilson said.

New salespeople are Sonny Caram and Breanna Devita, who started with King Fresh Produce in early May and early June, respectively.

Lilo Santellano, a new field rep who serves as a liaison between growers and the marketing staff, joined the company in early June, Wilson said.

King Fresh’s sales staff now includes Billy Wilson, sales manager; Francisco Ilic, export manager and Larry Larson, as well as Caram and Devita.

King Fresh Produce also has a sales office near Princeton, Mo.

“The company is growing nicely,” Keith Wilson said.
