Our Story


Preferred Fresh Cuts is a proud subsidiary of Van Eerden Foodservice, a fourth-generation, family owned broadline distributor in Grand Rapids, Michigan. 


In 2017, Preferred Fresh Cuts and Simon & Leeman merged operations to provide customers with an unparalleled produce experience. They combined their industry-leading reputation, technology, purchasing power and food safety certifications to deliver the highest quality, personalized service. 


In 2023, we moved into our new 25,000 square foot processing and distribution facility in the heart of downtown Detroit. We made strategic renovations and invested in state-of-the-art processing equipment to increase efficiency, consistency and  throughput.
