LEAMINGTON, ON – Pure Hothouse Foods has broken ground on a brand new state-of-the-art distribution center in San Antonio, Texas.

Jamie Moracci, President, Pure Flavor®“Pure Flavor®’s dedication to growing the most flavorful vegetables has fueled our expanding North American footprint and is a real tribute to the talent of our growers in all regions in North America,” says Jamie Moracci, President of Pure Flavor®.

This facility will encompass 60,000 square-feet of cooled space that features fully insulated cooler panels and the latest eco-friendly technologies to ensure all produce is maintained to its highest level of freshness, according to a press release.

Moracci continued, “With the continuous commitment to our customers in the southern region, and more production from our Mexican operations, we want to be able to provide more availability from our San Antonio facility to help fuel customer growth.”

This new facility will help Pure Flavor® distribute fresher produce to its expanding customer base in the Southern U.S. with limited food miles.

Matt Mastronardi, CMO, Pure Flavor®“In just over one decade since we opened our doors, we have seen Pure Flavor® expand from one distribution center in Ontario, Canada to three strategic locations in North America to service our growing customer base,” stated Matt Mastronardi, CMO.

He added, “I believe with our continued level of customer service, continual growing line up of fresh produce offerings from the greenhouse, accompanied by Pure Flavor®’s innovative marketing approach, we will see continued expansion into other regions in the near future.”

This new expansion will create more than 100 employment positions in the San Antonio, TX area. Pure Flavor® is looking to open it in the summer of 2015.
