Los Angeles: Sam Perricone was known primarily for his presence in the citrus and agricultural industry. Sam was also one of the founding partners of US Growers Cold Storage where he instilled the philosophy that has led to US Growers success since its founding in 1950: "Take care of your customers."
Sam was also known as a modest but very generous philanthropist.
However, the most important thing to Sam Perricone, was taking care of his family. US Growers considers its loyal employees family; it is in that spirit that US Growers is proud to sponsor the Sam Perricone Memorial Scholarship.
The scholarship is available to the children of US Growers employees; it is intended to perpetuate Sam's generosity and philanthropy for generations to come.
Sam Perricone left a tremendous legacy of friends and family and more than anything else he will be remembered for "doing business" the right way.
