HARVESTING THE VERY FINEST IN FRESH PRODUCE
Upon the expansion of the facility in 1985, AMCO was prompted to revolutionize its structure to meet the increasing demand of its client base. As a result, four individual companies merged together into the AMCO Group of Companies®, under the leadership of Fausto Amicone. To this day, AMCO Group completely and efficiently specializes in all the different aspects of the greenhouse produce market.
Today, AMCO’s 100 + acres of hydroponic produce production, packaging and delivery is still under a single ownership, creating a one-source distribution channel to meet the needs of its valued customers. With over 40 years of experience and an outstanding reputation in the industry, AMCO Group has created the optimal environment that guarantees the very finest in fresh produce, customer service, and an unmatched record of post-sale customer satisfaction.
AMCO INNOVATION IS KEY FOR MAINTAINING A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR CONSUMERS
Employ bumblebees to pollinate the blossoms to achieve an optimum fruit setting, which ensures uniform shape and quality.
House a cooling facility, with ethylene control systems used to eliminate any accelerated ripening which increases the shelf life of our products.
Built a sophisticated heating system to spare every plant from Ontario's harsh winters.
Installed a computer-controlled drip irrigation system dispenses all the nutrients each plant needs at every stage of development.
Use biological control methods that allow us to control insect populations. This technique isn't feasible out of the greenhouse environment.

our production by installing year round grow lights (HPS Lighting) which enabled us to harvest product during the winter, with this we can supply our customers with Ontario fresh produce – 365 days a year and lessen our current requirement to source winter product from other countries such as Mexico.
