David and Peter Truitt were still in their 20's when they purchased the original cannery that houses one of the company's divisions today. What they lacked in life experience the brothers made up for with prodigious energy, and optimism, a brilliant staff, and a strong family heritage in the food processing business. As they learned about their customers, meeting the demand for products of the highest quality became paramount and a determining factor for their future vision for their food manufacturing company.
By the end of the 1970's, the Truitt's historic cannery had been completely reconfigured inside and out, while less tangible shifts were taking place in the business model. David worked hard to establish individual relationships with growers and suppliers while Peter forged similarly close relationships with customers. Today these relationships are the cornerstone of a business that prides itself on integrity and an unparalleled service ethic.
Both David and Peter Truitt remain involved in the day-to-day operation of Truitt Bros., contributing to all facets of the business from exploring new technology to nurturing customer relationships.
