Emergent Cold, Dallas, Texas, announced plans for a strategic investment in Piura, Perú, which lays the foundation to build out a broader network in Perú and across the region.

“With this investment, Emergent adds Perú’s impressive fruit exports to its growing network of global services, and brings Emergent’s expertise and innovative solutions to its customers in Perú,” says David Palfenier, president for Latin America.

“We will implement our two core strategies in Latin America—support globally our customers who import and export in the region, and create national integrated logistics solutions for the major markets,” says Neal Rider, global CEO.

The new Perú facility will incorporate the latest technologies in individually-quick frozen (IQF) processing, efficient import/export services and modern storage and logistics capabilities to enhance distribution in Northern Perú.
