Kegel’s Produce hosts Advantage Lancaster for facility tour and demo.

Kegel’s Produce hosted the Advantage Lancaster group on 7/31/2018 for a tour of our facility and a live cooking demo with our Salesman and honorary Chef Eloy Jaimes. Young men and women from Lancaster City were shown how Kegel’s Produce operates and what we do in house. They were also treated to a health food cooking demonstration by Eloy and got to sample the delicious meal that was prepared. Members of our sales staff took the group through our warehouse and fresh cut department to show them how fresh produce is turned into pre-cut and packaged pieces ready to prepare or eat.
