Limoneira Expands U.S. Distribution Locations
SANTA PAULA, CA - Much about the fresh produce industry is rooted in the physical. As such, expansion across United States soil is key in becoming a leading supplier. Limoneira Company has doubled down on this idea, recently announcing the addition of new U.S. distribution opportunities in Miami, Florida, and Vineland, New Jersey.
“Our One World of Citrus™ model has been in place for several years now and has been instrumental in servicing our customers. With our operations in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, we are able to offer citrus from our trees direct to our buyers every day of the year,” said Alex Teague, Chief Operating Officer.
Limoneira is a diversified citrus growing, packing, selling, and marketing company with related agribusiness activities and real estate development operations throughout the country. Headquartered in Santa Paula, California, the supply-side savant is now 126 years old, according to a press release.
The company is dedicated to sustainability with 15,700 acres of rich agricultural lands, real estate properties, and water rights in California, Arizona, Chile, and Argentina. Limoneira is a leading producer of lemons, avocados, oranges, specialty citrus, and other crops that are enjoyed throughout the world.
“The addition of new distribution in Miami and a new warehouse and packing facility in Vineland, New Jersey, complements our distribution points in California and Texas and ensures efficient and more cost-effective distribution for our customers,” added John Carter, Director of Global Sales. “We’re doing our best to solve customer challenges and can offer logistical support and packaging options in addition to consistent fruit quality and sustainability solutions.”
