Club Chef is the fresh-cut processing member of the Castellini Group of Companies. Operating since 1978, Club Chef has grown from a small local processor into one of the largest regional processors in the country.
Bob Castellini, Chairman of the Castellini Group of Companies, acquired Club Chef in response to customers’ demand for processed produce. As time passed, Bob saw the paradigm shift as the foodservice industry began to demand fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. Capitalizing on this trend, Bob was able to establish Club Chef as Castellini Group of Companies’ fresh-cut provider.
