In 1960 Mr. Jorge Longinos Crespo Lizarraga established a business in el Rosario, Sinaloa, Mexico, for planting, harvesting, buying-selling and distribution of hot chili peppers in their different varieties in the main markets of Mexico.
In 1971, Mr. Roberto Crespo Fitch founded “Empaque Don Jorge” (in honor of his father), as a Mexican company continuing serving the national market. Through the years the company has been in a steady growth and evolution, enabling it to place itself at the international level.
The company’s main tasks are the production and export of chili peppers and mangoes, and in a minor scale other vegetables and agricultural products of the region, such as tomatoes, green tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, etc.
In 1996 R.C.F. Produce, Inc (Roberto Crespo Fitch Produce, Inc) was established in Nogales, Arizona, as an international produce shipper using its own brand names “RCF, Crespo’s and El Rosario” for the purpose of exporting mangoes and chili peppers to The United States and Canada. Since then RCF Produce, Inc is exporting produce products to all over the world.
In order to establish a more convenient route to the east of the United States, in 2000 Don Roberto Crespo, opened another company in the U.S. but this time in McAllen, Texas under the name of his hometown, been established as El Rosario Produce, LLC.
Since then “Grupo Crespo” continues to bring you the best quality produce to satisfy the consumer’s need.
