Family owned and operated Since 1948

GV Independant Packers

Our Story

The family operation began orcharding in 1948 under the founder Angelo Zurcas, alongside Michael Zurcas and several other Zurcas family members. The Georgopoulos family integrated and began orcharding in 1986 and is still today represented by director, Chris Georgopoulos. With a rich history, it highlights the importance of gathering the generational history and capturing the wealth and experience in growing fresh produce which has made GV Independent Packers (GVIP) the family owned business it is today.
