Ippolito International has added John Landa to its growing sales team. Landa, most recently with Dole in Salinas, CA, brings 20 years of produce industry experience to Ippolito.

He began his career working on the brokerage side with Fresh Network, and also worked stints at New Star (sales/leaf commodity manager) and Tanimura & Antle, (cauliflower and broccoli commodity manager). At Dole he handled vegetable sales before moving sales covering the full line of berries.

“I’ve enjoyed the fast pace of this industry am looking forward to continually learn as I ramp up with the growing Ippolito product line,” said Landa.

“We are extremely fortunate to have John join our expanding sales team,” said Dan Canales, senior vice president of sales, marketing and processing. “John has handled accounts in all arenas of the industry and areas of the country. He brings a wealth of experience that will complement our expanding needs. “

At Ippolito he will be handling sales and commodity management.

A Stockton, CA, native, Landa earned a degree in food nutritional science from Fresno State University. He enjoys staying fit by running, taking hot yoga classes and spending time with his two sons mountain biking and other outdoor activities.
