Mann adds fresh-cut fruit operation to Gonzalez facility

Mann Packing Co., a subsidiary of Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., and one of the largest suppliers of packaged vegetables in North America, has added a fresh-cut fruit area to its new facility in Gonzales, California.

This new section of the facility will allow Mann Packing to grow its fresh-cut fruit and organic fresh-cut fruit business and provide a new space to help the brand continue to meet consumer needs. 

Separate from the value-added vegetable part of the Gonzalez plant, the fresh-cut fruit area will allow fruit to be cut to order, the elimination of inventorying and for deliveries to be made directly from the Gonzalez plant. This new area of the plant is especially unique as it uses many vertically integrated products, such as pineapples, melons and grapes.

In addition, the Gonzales facility has a state-of-the-art sanitation and cleaning protocols, allowing for a high focus on food safety for cut fruit. Beyond face masks, hair nets and constant hand sanitation, the new facility has separate processing and raw material areas. Additionally, the facility also boasts a 260-foot-tall wind turbine to help Mann Packing continue its mission of sustainable processing. Wash water from the facility will also be reclaimed into industrial waste systems for use on local golf courses and city landscaping.
