Get Started

Action Food Sales has been focused on the perishable industry for a quarter century and through the years, has many outstanding achievements with national and regional brands. We are goal-oriented, aggressive, and have expert knowledge of our marketplace and customers

What sets us apart is our passion for success — the retailer's success and our vendors success. And ultimately, placing your product on the retailer's shelf.

A word from the President, John Nilsson

The Perishable food Industry has always been unique in contrast to other departments in a grocery store. The broker must have a PERISHABLE FOOD background in order to effectively service these specialty customers and manufacturers.

Action Food Sales was founded on the philosophy not of becoming the biggest broker, but instead striving to be the best broker in the Perishable Food Industry.

In keeping with this goal, Action Food Sales and our dedicated employees have worked tirelessly for nearly a quarter of a century to become "The Perishable Broker of Choice in the Carolinas."

We are relentless in our pursuit for 100% distribution of items in the stores we call upon. We have a "Passion for Excellence" and are fully committed to increase market share for all of the customers we are privileged to serve. We welcome you to contact us to discuss your company's needs and objectives.

Thank You,
John Nilsson
