A continuous commitment and focus on customers is Ole Tyme’s competitive advantage. We are the largest, woman-owned, fresh food distributor, and a family-owned company since 1973. We are industry experts who know and can anticipate our customers’ needs.

Each one of our valued customers receives direct, live, and proactive customer service from a team of Account and Customer Service Specialists. These specialists create a simple, seamless experience from the beginning of our partnership setting a foundation of dependability through the life of the relationship.

We know that trust and reliability are critical factors required to provide exceptional service and that accessibility and personalized service is essential to the success of our partnership and ultimately to the success of your business. We strive to go above and beyond customer expectations in service and quality to create customers for life.

Ole Tyme customers may utilize on-line ordering as well as take advantage of the Ole Tyme Produce mobile app for added convenience. Either system can be used for ordering, sales order printing, and paperless reporting.

The Customer Experience


On-Time Delivery

We hold a long-standing reputation of executing timely, accurate deliveries of the highest quality product, with deliveries throughout the Greater St. Louis Metro and outlying areas up to six days a week.

Our Customer Service and Account Specialists will assist customers with any special delivery instructions and establish delivery windows. Any product that falls short of exceeding expectations or determined to be of unfit quality at delivery will be immediately credited to the customer or replaced as quickly as possible.

Electronic Log Data (ELD) mounted in the dash of all delivery trucks allows up-to-the-minute tracking of orders so customers can stay updated and informed about where their order is and when it will arrive at their location.


Quality and Safety

When customers partner with Ole Tyme Produce, we worry about the quality and safety of your fresh products. Our company has attained the highest industry certification in food safety, one that requires rigorous procedures and processes that are documented and verified daily.

With product tracking from field to customer, we meticulously monitor every step of the distribution path. Our entire facility as well as delivery trucks are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to ensure optimal conditions throughout. We focus on food safety so that you can focus on the success of your business.
