T. Castro Produce

Our Story 

TCPhistoric (1).jpg

In 1924, Tom Castro Sr. started T. Castro as a single truck and produce route, delivering wholesale produce to the Chicagoland area.  100 years later, we continue the same tradition.  Utilizing our state of the art warehouse and fleet of temperature controlled vehicles, we now proudly serve the State of Illinois and Northwest Indiana with produce, dairy, meat and poultry, dry goods, and paper products. 

T. Castro now boasts 5 generations in the produce business.  We remain a family owned business conducting our operations with the honesty and integrity that comes from having your family name attached to everything you do.

For the past 30 years, T. Castro has been a business owned by persons with disabilities.  Owner Tom Prinske, and former owner Tom Castro, were individuals with disabilities who became instrumental in the State of Illinois groundbreaking legislation classifying individuals with disabilities into governmental usage and set aside programs.
