Baloian Farms Revamps Packing Facility for Future Expansion
FRESNO, CA - Baloian Farms is gearing up for greater expansion with the completion of its recently renovated packing facility. Key improvements include the enclosure and cooling of approximately 42,000 square feet of the existing facility. These upgrades are meant to increase product quality and reduce the potential risk of contamination, as well as improve employee comfort.
“Not only do we take pride in pampering our products, we also take great pride in the way we treat our employees,” said Jeremy Lane, Baloian Sales Manager. “Creating a positive working environment for our employees that yields the quality we are known for is a win-win for everybody.”
The upgrades come just in time for Baloian’s local mini-sweet, baby bell, and green and red pepper season, as well as all repack and value-added packing operations.
According to a press release, the new enclosure allows for the addition of expanded cold storage, as well as processing areas that could be used if Baloian Farms pursued certifications for ready to eat products. Lane remarked that the facility “keeps us on our path of growth and innovation and we’re excited about the possibilities.”
