Beau St. Germain

Proud father of two small girls and one boy and over 10 years of service at PCP. I am passionate about our agricultural cooperative and the role we play in supplying the world with delicious, nutritious and affordable shelf stable produce with no food waste. When not working, I can be found on a local playground or camping with my family taking in the beautiful sites in Northern California. My go to items are our 28oz crushed tomatoes, and 15oz chunky peaches in juice. My kids favorite items are diced peaches in 100% juice!
