Who We Are

The Mission Continues

The bedrock that Dot's founders, Robert and Dorothy Tracy, built the company on was their values, integrity and focus on the customer. Today, the Dot Mission Statement reflects those core values: To positively and significantly contribute to the success of our business partners.

Robert and Dorothy Tracy didn't set out to invent a totally new way to distribute food products, or to create a company that would become the industry leader in food redistribution.  Their goal from the beginning was much humbler:  to help improve their customers' business.  At Dot, we know that if we help our business partners succeed, we will prosper along with them.
