"Goddard Produce is one of the best produce companies I have dealt with in my 20+ year career. I have been working with them since I moved to Lakeland about 6 years ago. They are very accommodating and will go the extra mile to get you whatever your heart desires! They are very professional and really easy to work with. Jason Goddard the grandson of the founder John Goddard even comes in at the end of the week to make sure everything came in well that week. If you are looking for a produce company in central Florida there is no one better or friendlier than John Goddard Produce."

"Goddard Produce is a company that is run with integrity and family values at heart. They are dedicated to high quality product and the best customer service. After 15+ years in the business, I wouldn't work with anyone else! Thanks Goddard!"

Texas Cattle Company / Lakeland
"Goddard Produce has been providing produce to Polk County Public Schools for over 50 years. They provide excellent products and service to our school cafeterias. Our managers appreciate the personal and reliable service they receive. We are serving more fresh fruits and vegetables in school meals than ever before - we know we can count on the support of Goddard Produce in our efforts to serve healthy, high quality meals to our students."
School Nutrition Coordinator / Polk County School Board
"I have been using John Goddard Produce, Inc. for over 20 years, since 1994. I have found them to be honest, reliable, conscientious and courteous. They provide competitively priced produce while delivering top notch service. It has been a pleasure working with Bobby, Dick and Jason Goddard over the years, and I look forward to working with them in the future."
Beef 'O' Brady's / North Lakeland
"We here at Harry's Seafood Bar and Grille have purchased our produce from John Goddard Produce, Inc. for nearly 20 years. They have the highest quality produce in the area. Their customer service is top notch, and they are always willing to go above and beyond to meet our needs. I would highly recommend selecting them as your preferred produce vendor."

"I have been doing business with Goddard Produce for 25 years. They are the most consistent company I have ever done business with. Customer service has diminished all around us in most all walks of life; it's refreshing to see Goddard Produce has held their values over the test of time. They provide quality produce in a timely manner in the quantities that work best for your operation."
