Freska Produce International Adds Three Ripening Rooms to Oxnard, California, Facility; Tom Hall and Jesus “Chuy” Loza Comment
OXNARD, CA - Retailers asked, and Freska Produce International listened. Amid demand for increased ripening capabilities from its customers, the mango and avocado provider has announced it completed the construction of three new ripening rooms at its facility in Oxnard, California.
“With the request of our retail partners asking for ripening capabilities, we went ahead [and] planned this addition to our facility a couple of years ago,” explained Tom Hall, Sales Manager and Partner. “This will allow us to provide ripened fruit to any of our customers within 48 hours and something we are looking forward to offering more customers down the road on both avocados and mangos.”
Freska’s new ripening rooms will be capable of ripening three loads simultaneously and are set to be ready for use by the end of the week, as noted in a release. The rooms were completed in January 2022 and include state-of-the-art Thermal Tech ripening technology that is able to ripen both mangos and avocados.
“These ripening rooms are state-of-the-art and will benefit our end users,” commented Jesus “Chuy” Loza, Partner, further expressing how this expansion will provide new advantages to the purveyor’s operations.
With these new ripening rooms added to its operation, how will Freska up its presence in the sector? AndNowUKnow will be here with the answers.
