Randhawa Farms is ready to ramp up production with the expansion of their cooler facility and greenhouse acres.

Based in BC’s Lower Mainland, Randhawa has added almost 22,000 square feet of cold storage with a 600-pallet capacity facility that includes two new value-added lines.

Randhawa harvests bell peppers from March to November with a year-round cucumber offering. Their high tech greenhouses currently hold over 60 acres of bell peppers, long English cucumbers and mini cucumbers. The new cooler, packing line and staging area will ensure optimal temperatures are consistent throughout the packing process,  increasing shelf life even further for their produce.

Randhawa will expand by 15 acres of bell peppers at the end of 2018 with a new packing line installed in time for next year’s season.
