The Berry Man, Inc.
7 days a week - 363 days a year.
When a chef runs out of something on Sunday morning, who does he call? The Berry
Man -- open seven days a week. And if there is a last minute shortage at four in the
afternoon before the big banquet, chances are that a salesperson from The Berry
Man will be delivering the needed produce to save the day.
This local Santa Barbara company is owned and operated by Santa Barbara resident Guy De Mangeon.
The Berry Man started on a shoestring in 1989, when Guy began selling sweet, succulent local
strawberries out of the back of his truck. Going from restaurant backdoor to restaurant backdoor,
starting with a few, the number grew as Guy's reputation spread. The inventory grew along with his
reputation; more and more chefs asked Guy to carry more and more items.
Our People make the difference.
The employees who make up the Berry Man have grown in number over the years -- but a
surprising number have stayed with Guy since the beginning. In fact, two of Berry Man’s
first employees have been here over 14 years. Galdino Ortega is now warehouse manager
and Ismael Medina the company buyer.
From the local Fields to the local kitchens.
Our exceptional geographic location allow The Berry Man, Inc. to
provide fresh local produce to local restaurant, school, institution
An amazing 60 % of our produce are grown in the 75 miles radius
of Santa Barbara.
