Mastronardi Produce Opens New Facility in Right to Work Texas
Mastronardi Produce just opened its new location in Laredo, Texas. The new place consists of 185,000 square feet, which will be used to distribute more fresh fruits in vegetables. This project comes as a result of increased demand, and it will also be great for the area’s economy.
From Area Development Magazine:
“We are always looking to optimize our nationwide network of distribution centers and improve our operations. Today we operate 9 distribution centers totaling over one million square feet of cooled warehouse and distribution space[. E]ach operates in partnership with our customers to reduce food miles while increasing shelf life and in doing so, their profitability. […]
“The expanded omnichannel facility allows us to increase our own efficiencies and distribute a wider range of SUNSET branded fruits and vegetables with its multiple temperature zones. It also allows the company to better meet the increased customer demand and provide even greater value in the face of the changes in retail and foodservice brought on by the challenges of the pandemic and its aftermath.”
“Mastronardi’s continued commitment […] is based on its partnership with the Laredo Economic Development Corporation and the Chamber of Commerce. Their continued support […] and growth in the area contributed to our decision to expand our presence in the area. […] We’d like to especially thank the Laredo EDC and the City of Laredo for their support.”
