Elias Produce (The Best Berries Corp.) began as a passion project by Isaias “Elias” Franco in 1990. Having worked in the produce business for many years, Isaias set out to start his own company when his mentor (who called him Elias) retired and returned to Greece. Using his knowledge and experience Isaias started Elias Produce (referring to the name his mentor gave him).
Today Elias Produce is a multi-generational family owned and operated business. Together they continue the tradition of excellence and quality service for the countless customers who have relied on Elias Produce for their produce needs.
Through decades of experience Elias Produce has built solid relationships with many California strawberry farmers, which has become the cornerstone of our business. This allows us direct access to such produce as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and much more directly from the growers, no middlemen involved. Beyond berries, we offer a wide range of produce from the best producers in the world!
Elias Produce is located in the historic Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Market in Downtown Los Angeles. The market is easily accessible from the 10 Freeway and just a few miles east of the East Los Angeles Interchange.
