KINGSVILLE, ON – Mastronardi Produce has completed the construction of a new greenhouse venture: Pepperco USA. The largest greenhouse pepper company in North America, Mastronardi Produce has vastly expanded its acreage and capacity in Coldwater, Michigan since completing Phase II of its greenhouse operation this past summer.

Paul Mastronardi, CEO

“After the recent completion of Phase II, we decided to carry on expanding our Coldwater greenhouses to 100 acres,” shared CEO Paul Mastronardi. “We’ve already established a strong demand for our Michigan grown tomatoes from retailers and were overwhelmed with the response from consumers. We’re anticipating even more enthusiasm for local SUNSET® peppers this Spring.”

Greenhouse builders Havecon Projects and Stolze finished Phase II of the company's expansion initiative last August. Afterwards, they stayed on to complete the Pepperco project, a 41 acre facility, and the first large scale pepper greenhouse in the United States.


The Coldwater operation has become a tremendous asset for Mastronardi since its opening in 2012.

Joe Sbrocchi, VP of Business Development“Because of the strategic location of Coldwater, we’re able to reduce food miles and deliver a vine-ripened product,” said Joe Sbrocchi, VP of Business Development. “With such close proximity to a number of distribution centers, we’re able to harvest, pack and ship our produce to our clients’ doors the same day, which ensures our consumers are getting the freshest product possible.”

Pepperco USA is set to begin harvesting in Spring 2015, according to a press release.

Great work on this new facility, Mastronardi Produce!
