Who We Are
Steve Gerson, Coach of the 1997 Gold Medal British Virgin Islands Culinary Team and author of 'Contemporary Caribbean Cusine' has been Chef of his own award winning restaurant, Food & Beverage Director at a number of exclusive Caribbean Resorts, and Consultant to properties throughout the Caribbean.
While conservation of energy, food safety and food freshness is important worldwide, it was the particular difficulties faced by isolated island resorts that after thirty years in the Hotel and Restaurant Industry, led Mr. Gerson to the development of RD FRESH, VEGIEFRESH, FOODFRESH, TRANSPORTFRESH, AND THE ABILITY TO ACCELLERATE THE DRYING AGING OF STEAKS.
From its most humble beginning of a single client JBs On the Beach in January of 2008, RD FRESH has grown into major force in the food service industry with commercial, retail and transport divisions.
An award winning company with an award winning product, our success in Florida is being mirrored throughout the country with our commercial distribution efforts off to an amazing start in Seattle, Virginia and Texas... and now RD FRESH has even crossed the borders into Mexico and Canada.
A research and development project began almost a decade ago to find a natural way to keep food fresher, longer, as opposed to genetically engineering the food or utilizing modified atmospheric packaging, and to do so in a manner that instead of incurring a great cost to accomplish, would actually save money in the process.
At Keep Food Fresher Longer, we are proud to sell products that save our clients money, but we are even more proud that our products help save the planet. The conservation of food doesn't get alot of press, but it should! According to NREL (The Department Of Energy's principal desiccant research site), estimates that desiccant dehumidification could cut electricity demand by as much as 25%. The Natural Resources Defense Council says wasted food eats up a quarter of all freshwater consumed in the U.S. along with 4% of the oil while producing 23% of the methane emissions.
Simply put, to create a network of "partners" and have a positive impact on their lives by supplying a product that has a positive impact on the planet. Our partners are our distributors, our clients and our customers, individuals and businesses that are making money or saving money with a 100% natural, 100% green, 100% passive, 100% recyclable to the planet, zero footprint product, a product we are proud to manufacture, represent, and to be able to offer to those who understand that saving money and saving energy, while helping to save the planet "is as good as it gets"!
