Meet Annette

Annette Calandra has been with Amerifresh for 21 years and comes from a long lineage of farmers. When she was young, her family moved to California, where her father bought 40 acres and began farming table and wine grapes.  From there the family business expanded into a successful packing operation out of Sanger, California. At 18, her brother took over the business after they tragically lost both parents. Due to her extensive family history, she is an expert in table grapes. Today you can find Annette working as a Sales Associate out of Fresno, California.
