In the late 1930’s, when the United States was beginning to recover from the Great Depression, a young Stanford graduate came to California’s Salinas Valley seeking employment. H.W. “Cy” Mann began his career trimming fruit and lettuce for 40¢ an hour. In 1939, he opened a fresh carrot packing operation and a business was born. From day one, Mr. Mann built a reputation for honesty and integrity—one that remains with us today.

In 2018, Mann™ was acquired by Del Monte Fresh Produce. Today, operating as the Del Monte Fresh Produce vegetable division, Mann™ remains one of the country’s leading suppliers of fresh vegetables, including our proprietary BROCCOLINI® baby broccoli product and award-winning Stringless Sugar Snap Peas.
