Mohegan — Mohegan Sun has awarded a multiyear produce contract to a Hartford-based company that’s been supplying food for casino restaurants for the past eight years, the casino announced.

In the past three years, Sardilli Produce & Dairy has provided more than 490,000 pounds of Connecticut-grown produce to Mohegan Sun-owned restaurants, including Todd English’s Tuscany, Season’s Buffet and novelle.

“We certainly had interest in other big players for this contract but based on the well-established relationship, exceptional service and overall great product that Sardilli provides, the choice wasn’t very difficult in the end,” Jeff Hamilton, Mohegan Sun’s president and general manager, said in a statement. “They’ll continue food distribution to more than 10 restaurants here at Mohegan Sun, and that’s in addition to our back-of-house grill that we have for thousands of team members (employees)."

“Great local partners like Sardilli Produce & Dairy are extremely crucial to our vast food-and-beverage operations and we’re happy to announce the continued work together,” Hamilton said.

Sardilli Produce & Dairy, which began as a fruit stand in Southington in 1955, now operates out of a 30,000-square-foot facility in Hartford and plans to move this year into a renovated 225,000-square-foot facility in Windsor.
