Ford’s Produce now has an App!  We’ve developed and perfected a great new ordering application to make your job easier.  Now you can order your favorite fresh fruits and vegetables right from your Android or Apple smartphone.  You can download it in the Google or Apple app stores, just search for Ford’s Produce.  It uses the same credentials that many of you have already set up for online ordering.  If you need a user ID and password, just give us a call!

The Ford’s Produce Checkout App was developed to give our customers another tool to help streamline and expedite their ordering process. With the advent of smart phones and tablets, many things are now possible which make the ordering process faster and easier. Now you can place an order quickly byscrolling through your most commonly purchased items, and even choose from new items. Pictures are even linked to the items for ease of recognition.

You’ll notice along the bottom of the screen several choices. The first is the home screen, the second is the Order Guide, which shows your most frequently ordered items, then you have the entire Catalog, which lists all of our products by commodity, the Shopping Cart, where you can do a final review of your purchases, and then the Filing Cabinet Icon where you can view your recent orders and their status.
