1912.That was then....

Testa Produce's roots date back to 1912, with founder Dominick Testa selling stalks of celery door-to-door out of a basket. The creation of the Chicago Terminal Produce Market provided a central selling location for years.

In its fourth generation


As the restaurant industry evolved, so did Testa Produce. In 2011, Testa expanded yet again and moved into its new home: a 91,300 square foot facility to accomodate an ever-growing list of restaurant, hotel and foodservice customers.



Coming from Florida I’ve always had a close relationship with my produce vendors to ensure the best product quality I can get and for the last seven years Testa has been a great partner to have while settling in as a chef here in Chicago. They are not only extremely responsive to everything I ask of them but they are focused to ensure I have the freshest ingredients on a daily basis.

Testa has been an intricate part to the success of my business and they have made tremendous efforts to exceed expectations anywhere from offering the best of what local and sustainable products have to offer, to creating a great story for me to share amongst my clients when discussing Testa’s focus on becoming a more green and sustainable company themselves with their new state of the art produce facility just south of the city. Peter and team strive for excellence in everything they do and I am proud to work side by side with Testa.
