PANDA FOOD BROKERS LLC was originally founded as Panda Food Brokerage, Inc. In 1982
Panda specializes in brokering perishable products to Service Deli, Service Bakery, Meat Department, Food Service, C-Store and Natural/Health accounts. Panda covers the service needs of our principals in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, West Texas, Southern California and Nevada.
Panda provides a superior level of service through focused and personalized support of its partners in regards to new store openings, resets, inventory management and addressing the specific requests of the merchandising managers.
Many of the product lines that Panda represents include items that are highly perishable. Extensive experience with managing perishable inventories has provided our principals with low spoils rates and our customers with high order fill rates. Experience with these sensitive items helps ensure correct product rotation and quick reaction to variations in product movements.
