Bay Food Brokerage was founded under the belief that a food brokerage firm that concentrated fully on the perishable side of the industry would succeed and do very well. In 1993, Cammie Chatterton and Mark Woolever saw that the food brokerage industry was severely changing. We felt that we could concentrate on the perishable retail market and would offer a difference between the broker-retailer-manufacturer relationship that was standard at the time in this competitive industry. Bay Food Brokerage has grown from a single focused idea from two people with a strong belief that we would succeed into a brokerage firm that expands 7 states with employees in all key areas of the South East region. As a company we believe in reinvesting in our people and the company. We believe that the sales job does not stop once an item is presented to the buyer, that is only the beginning. The true test of a great retail broker is how well they sell at store level. This is why we have put much of our reinvestment back into our retails sales teams.

Bay Food Brokerage has the same core values and beliefs that we were founded on: hard work, facing opportunities as a team and to be the best food brokerage in our market. These beliefs are what drives us daily and keeps our focus customers and our clients. Many manufacturers and customers have teamed our winning combination to expand and grow their business.
