Cuisine Solutions has opened its new $200 million facility in San Antonio. The location brings a level of innovation and technology even higher than their other global facilities and will enable the company to meet increased demand for their sous vide products for foodservice providers, restaurants, airlines, hotels, and retail businesses.
Cuisine Solutions incorporated best-in-industry practices in sustainability design and construction. The new facility was recently awarded LEED certification and operates the largest community solar installation in San Antonio. As part of the stormwater management, they incorporated a water recycling program and use of compressed earth block (CEB), which allows future expansion of plant areas without disruption to the surrounding environment.

New facility features:
- Estimated $200 million investment, largest investment on Brooks campus to date
