Red Sun Farms is continuing to expand both in Ontario and Mexico. One of the largest vertically integrated greenhouse operations in North America, the company says while they continue to to grow year over year, investments made in 2020 are outpacing the growth of previous years.
This spring, Red Sun Farms began construction on its first phase (27 acres) of a three-phase project totaling 63.8 acres in Kingsville, Ontario. A second investment for Red Sun Farms in Ontario is underway with an additional 18 acres of high-tech greenhouse farming, which will drastically expand Red Sun Farms’ overall portfolio and bring the total acreage for this location to 42 acres. Jim DiMenna, President of Red Sun Farms, states, “This investment into the Ontario area, will allow Red Sun Farms to better serve our consumers in both Canada & the USA.”
Great things are also happening in Mexico for Red Sun Farms as they are in construction to complete a 25 acre expansion this winter and 50 acres next spring to the existing high-tech greenhouse that will cultivate tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. “The team is very excited to have these initial 25 acres ready for winter 2020, followed by an additional 50 acres in spring 2021” states Carlos Visconti, CEO Red Sun Farms Canada & USA, “This additional acreage will reaffirm Red Sun Farms as the largest vertically integrated high-tech greenhouse in North America.”
Red Sun Farms is also expanding their distribution center in Dublin, Virginia, to reduce their carbon footprint and better serve their customers.
