Taylor Farms Retail has announced an 80,000-square-foot expansion of its cut vegetable facility in Monterey County CA. This expansion will more than double capacity of the existing facility, bringing the plant to 135,000 square feet on 21 acres. The expansion is scheduled to be completed in early April 2014.
“The success of our Green Giant Fresh branded cut vegetable line is fueling the need for expansion. We continue to replace competing brands at major retailers,” said Mark Campion, president of Taylor Farms Retail. “In each case we see a minimum of 20% sales lift. Furthermore, when we couple our cut vegetable product offerings with our extensive organic and conventional salad offerings we are able to deliver more frequently to each distribution center, resulting in fresher product on shelf for the consumer.” The new plant will include state-of-the-art, commodity-specific processing equipment as well as a major focus on energy efficiency and cold chain management. The facility will use renewable energy produced by wind and solar technologies. “By expanding, we will accelerate our ability to offer high quality brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and green beans along with our current cut vegetable product offerings,” said Nicholas DaCosta, chief operating officer of Taylor Farms Retail.
