About MAS Melons

MAS Melons & Grapes LLC was founded on August 1997 by Miguel A. Suarez, a distributor in Nogales Arizona, and Alberto Vanegas, Carlos Terminel, Alfonso Ruysanchez and Rodrigo Acuña, which are all growers from Caborca, Sonora, Mexico. The company was created as a partnership with the vision of establishing a vertical integrated group that would grow and distribute its own products.

Since the very beginning, due to the high quality standards achieved with the fruits and vegetables grown by the partners, the idea was to create a truly international customer base in order to maximize the sales and marketing capabilities.

Through the years, the company has created very strong relationships and partnerships with multinational companies from Europe, Oceania and Asia, including south east Asia.

In 2001, with the focus on serving strategic asian markets, the company opened an office in Japan, and since then, business keeps growing year after year.

Today, with two salesman located in Japan, MAS Melons & Grapes markets products other than the traditional ones that the company handles. This asian branch is more focused on vegetable items of which there is a strong demand in Japan and other asian markets.

Throughout the years, the company has acquired a vast knowledge and experience in international logistics, which is crucial to the success of the multinational business.
