Improvements that come with the facility revamp include new fumigation and research & development labs, as well as unique hybrid lines and multiple packing lines for higher efficiency. New capabilities for PLU stickering will also be added, as well as new bin scrubbers and labor-savings carton tracking to better comply with produce traceability. Cold chain management will also get an update, which includes increased cold storage capacity, decreased cold chain break time, and additional upgraded cold chain monitoring solutions.
