Vision Produce, Los Angeles, announced plans to expand its Phoenix, Ariz., warehouse and transportation center.

“Our Phoenix facility over the last several years has developed a streamlined re-pack operation, sustainable energy additions and near-perfect food safety scores,” says Donald Souther, senior vice president of sales and marketing. We see a growing need for storage, cross dock, re-pack and distribution in the Phoenix area, as new products continually inundate the grocery industry.”

The 35,000-square-foot warehouse consists of a 20,000-square-foot cooler space divided into seven coolers with automatic independent temperature control (from 30-50°F).

This Primus GSF-certified facility also offers a staging area for order set up, multiple dock doors for shipping and receiving and a re-pack facility capable of hand sorting most product lines.

Plus, the solar panels installed on the rooftop supply 58% of total electricity demand.
