Catania Worldwide to Open New Operation Out of IMAS FRESH, Paul Catania Comments
MISSISSAUGA, ON - Catania Worldwide has made a capital investment in a new operation, which will allow the company to pursue and develop new opportunities and increase its core product and service offerings.
“Until the time arrives where we are ready to open up our own facility, we will be operating out of IMAS FRESH,” said Matt Catania, General Manager of the new operation. “We will have multiple cold storage coolers, with the capacity to store 600 pallets, along with five dock-level loading doors. IMAS FRESH is also a fully certified operation with the capability to repackage and regrade product, located conveniently just a few miles from the border.”
Matt Catania also stated that Catania Worldwide has been crossing loads through McAllen for 20 years, for items ranging from limes to cactus pears to lemons and most recently, Mexican figs. The volume of its service offerings, commodities, and packing has increased exponentially—making this new operating base a necessity and an opportunity.
“Adding Catania McAllen to our already existing U.S. operations, Catania New Jersey, and our longstanding California operation, Stellar Distributing, increases our reach as an organization and allows us to provide better quality control and easier logistical pathways to service our customers,” he continued.
In the coming years, Catania's latest facility will be followed by rebranded packaging, new commodities, and new service launches.
“It’s a very exciting time in produce,” said Paul Catania, President and CEO. “With new technologies and innovations to the growing recognition of the importance of food safety, we are excited as this facility will allow us to generate new opportunities for ourselves, our customers, and growers.”
