Company History

Roland Marketing was established in 1971 by Mr. Larry Meuers for the purpose of growing, packing and shipping fresh fruit and vegetables in the upper Midwest. The company is still family owned and operated. Premium quality is Roland’s foremost goal. Decades of practical experience and attention to every detail have enabled Roland to provide the industry with the quality often associated with small family run businesses. Over the years, the company has evolved into a more diverse produce company with affiliated and sister companies as well as a number of quality conscience grower partners. Under the direction of Mr. Dan Meuers, COO and Mr. Ron (Tim) Tschida, VP of National Sales, the company has expanded into a significant presence throughout the United States, Canada and Asia shipping to the retail, wholesale and foodservice trade fresh apples and cider, cherries, potatoes, onions, organic grapes and organic raisins among other fruits and vegetables. In particular, the fresh apple segment of the company has grown dramatically over the years, shipping product from Washington State, imports and most of the significant local and regional areas of the country. The company has developed an experienced sales staff, several who are bilingual and sell imported product from Mexico, Central and South America. We also provide transportation services to most United States and Canadian cities for their produce. Roland Marketing’s name has been synonymous with financial stability, quality product and service as evidenced by its Trading Membership and 4X rating in the Blue Book and Business Character Award and 4 star rating in the Red Book of the Produce Industry.
