One of the investors, Premium’s original founder and current president Emmitt Pfost, said the group includes "a family of growers, a harvesting company and a highly talented group of individuals with years of experience in value-added vegetable production and sales."Coronet had purchased the firm and its 75,000-square-foot processing facility in 1990 and was operating it as Coronet Foods Western Division.
