About

The Ben E. Keith Mid-South Division division was formerly known as the Dillaha Fruit Company, which was purchased in 1973. Dillaha was founded by Theo A Dillaha Sr, in 1929 and had operated in the downtown Little Rock area for over 44 years. Immediately after the purchase, Ben E. Keith began construction on a new, larger facility near the new Little Rock River port area. The company moved into their new facility in 1974 and continued to operate as the Dillaha Fruit Company for the next five years, at which time they officially became known as Ben E. Keith Arkansas. Over the next 33 years Ben E. Keith Arkansas continued to grow, and in 1985 the company acquired a local competitor, CMD Produce. In 1986, the company acquired another local company that specialized in seafood, Mid-South Seafood and incorporated both acquisitions into the Little Rock facility. This added to the Ben E. Keith’s portfolio of goods offered to its customers. In 2002, Ben E. Keith expanded into a newly reconstructed facility with approximately 50 trained sales personnel facilitating sales in street, national accounts and healthcare. At least one-fourth of the associates have been dedicated to the company for more than 10 years. In 2015 Ben E. Keith broke ground on their new 420,000 square foot facility in North Little Rock with an estimated completion date of Summer 2017. Ben E. Keith Mid-South covers the entire state of Arkansas and portions of Louisiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
