Our Story

Food and Family is our Foundation

In 1999, Jason Eckert and his father Philip started Harvest Food Group. What began with two computers, two desks, a dial up modem and lots of prayers and hard work has gone from zero dollars in sales in a 400 square foot office to one of the fastest growing privately owned food companies in the country. We specialize in conventional and organic IQF ingredients for manufacturing, retail and foodservice customers. Today HFG employs over 250 people in locations in Naperville and Chicago, Illinois.

We are dedicated to providing the best Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) fruits and vegetables in the world. HFG supplies, packs, transports and stores both small and large quantities of conventional, organic and specialty fruit and vegetable products on a global scale.

Our mission is straightforward: provide our customers with the highest quality goods at fair prices, with unparalleled service and delivery. Honesty and integrity are our most essential components.

“Relationships have eternal value, and remaining humble is the key to success. People won't care how much you know unless they know how much you care.” JASON ECKERT
