Peri & Sons and The Nunes Company Set the Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony Date for new Walker River Cooling Facility
YERINGTON, NV - Two major players in the organic industry have set the ribbon-cutting ceremony date to celebrate their new facility. The Nunes Company and Peri & Sons Farms have announced the new Walker River Cooling facility event will take place in Yerington, Nevada, at Peri & Sons Farms on Tuesday, August 29, 2017.
“It is refreshing to work with a state that appreciates the agricultural industry. We would like to give a special thanks to the state of Nevada, Governor Sandoval, Lyon County, the City of Yerington, NV, and all of the regulatory agencies that have worked with the Nunes and Peri families to help make this happen,” said Tom Nunes, IV, President of The Nunes Company.
The new facility, designed to provide efficiencies in the cooling and distribution of the produce, was opened in mid-May 2017. This facility will allow the companies to grow, pack, and directly ship produce more expediently.
“The completion of Walker River Cooling brings our operations full circle here in Yerington as every aspect of farming produce―from growing and packing the organics to distribution all across the country―happens right here in Mason Valley,” said David Peri, President of Peri & Sons Farms. “Thanks to the shared vision and partnership with The Nunes Company, we have positioned our operations for continued growth and expansion to meet the demands of the marketplace.”
Peri & Sons Farms and The Nunes Company will be joined by Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, as well as federal, state, and community leaders to celebrate the grand opening of the Walker River Cooling facility. Featured speakers include Governor Sandoval; David Peri, Founder and President of Peri & Sons Farms; and Tom Nunes, V, Vice-President of Operations at The Nunes Company.
Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval said of the opening, “The joint-venture behind Walker River Cooling is a symbol of true entrepreneurship, economic development and innovation right here in the heart of Nevada. As the only commercial Nevada growers with a facility of this kind in the state, these two family-owned and operated businesses have demonstrated their commitment to the industry through their leadership and vision for agriculture and its potential while meeting the demands of the marketplace. I’m proud to welcome this new facility to the Nevada family and its positive impact it will have in our State.”
