Val Verde Vegetable Co. Inc., a McAllen, Texas-based grower-shipper operation was founded more than 25 years ago on land farmed by the Schuster family for generations. Frank Schuster serves as president and chief executive officer and is in charge of the sales team. Son Kurt is chief financial officer and son Max takes care of the production end of the business.
Frank Schuster Sr. came to the Rio Grande Valley from his native Austria in 1935 and quickly developed a prosperous farming and ranching operation as well as becoming a leader in the Texas produce industry. His son, Frank Schuster Jr., took over the company at the time of his father’s death in 1977 and formed Val Verde Vegetable Co. in 1987. Val Verde continues to grow and ship vegetable crops in South Texas.
Val Verde Vegetable Co, Inc. is a fully integrated packer/shipper located in the sub-tropical growing region of the Rio Grande Valley, Texas.
