LA Specialty is a wholesale distributor of produce, dairy, and specialty foods. They provide the vital link between producers and consumers, allowing Oxy to purchase and serve items from local farms and producers. LA Specialty connects with farms within 200 miles of Oxy, and delivers fresh produce straight to our door. Every week, they put out the “Green Sheet,” a publication which features the best seasonal, local produce for our chefs to choose from. This tool helps us purchase produce that is in season and fresh. It also reduces the distance that produce has to travel before getting to Oxy.
LA Specialty undertakes a variety of green initiatives to reduce their footprint, and make their operation more sustainable. In order to conserve resources, they recycle shrink wrap, repair and reuse wood pallets, reuse boxes, donate left-over food, and use a bar code system that has allowed them to reduce paper use. In addition, special features in their distribution center increase energy efficiency.
