Pure Hothouse expanding operations in the U.S.
Jan. 26, 2015, San Antonio, TX — Pure Hothouse Foods has broken ground on a state-of-the-art distribution centre In San Antonio.
This facility will encompass 60,000 square feet of cooled space, with fully insulated cooler panels and all the latest eco-friendly technologies to ensure all produce is maintained to its highest level of freshness.
This will help to distribute fresher products to its expanding customer base in the southern U.S. with limited food miles.
“Pure Flavour®’s dedication to growing the most flavourful vegetables has fuelled our expanding North American footprint and is a real tribute to the talent of our growers in all regions in North America,” says company president Jamie Moracci.
“With the continuous commitment from our customers in the southern region, and more production from our Mexican operations, we want to be able to provide more availability from our San Antonio facility to help fuel customer growth.”
With this new expansion, Pure Flavour will be creating over 100 employment positions in the San Antonio area, and looks to open the facility this summer.
“In just over one decade since we opened our doors, we have seen Pure Flavour expand from one distribution centre in Ontario, Canada to three strategic locations in North America to service our growing customer base” notes Matt Mastronardi, CMO.
“I believe with our continued level of customer service, continual growing line up of fresh produce offerings from the greenhouse, accompanied by Pure Flavour’s innovative marketing approach, we will see continued expansion into other regions in the near future.”
Pure Hothouse Foods Inc is a grower, shipper and marketer of greenhouse grown vegetables and value-added Fresh Kits sold under the Pure Flavour® name across North America.
