Adams Produce Co. LLC is a fruit and produce wholesaler located at 302 Finley Avenue in Birmingham with distribution facilities serving Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
The company was founded in 1903 by Edwin Adams and remained family-owned for generations. It was a primary supplier to Hill's Food Stores and also supplies restaurants, schools and other institutions with fresh produce.
in Spring 2012, after amassing tens of millions of dollars in debt and missing weeks of payroll, Adams Produce ceased operations and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
