DPI delivers a world of opportunities to Specialty Food retailers nationwide.

From our modest beginnings decades ago, we have built on our passion for good food to become a principal supplier of exciting, top quality products that appeal to a full spectrum of niche markets. Today we supply over 55,000 SKUs comprised of perishable and non-perishable food items from five continents. We bring national product scope and buying power to local retailers and corporate outlets through our massive network of over 43 million cubic feet of warehouse space in eight carefully situated facilities, much of which is climate controlled. Immediate product availability and pricing are achieved through advanced ordering and inventory systems that can be accessed in-store from our teams’ notebook computers. Reliable product flow and uncompromising quality are ensured by our temperature controlled trucking fleet, which logs over 45,000 miles each day. The biggest advantage DPI offers, however, is our people. We bring unique market niche expertise, extensive retail experience and the seasoned judgment to create the right program for each retailer’s individual needs…and the value only DPI can deliver.
