As AFP grew, Hugo bought more buildings and continued his expansion. The company continued its rapid growth due to hard work, excellent quality, fair pricing and unwavering integrity.

Passionate, dedicated, loyal, character and the customer first best describes Hugo Acosta; his knowledge of produce in unmatched.
