San Miguel Produce upgrades to larger facility in Oxnard

San Miguel Produce, a provider of fresh-cut dark leafy greens, has moved to a new facility in Oxnard, California, a few miles from its old facility/headquarter location.

The 85,000-square-foot facility addresses the increasing demand and growth the company has experienced and allows for additional office and production space- including the addition of two new form fill machines.

While the construction of the new facility was completed in the winter of 2018, the holiday season pushed back the installation of the final production line. Now fully operational for the last few months, the company has been focused on fine-tuning processes in the new plant.

With the increased capacity, San Miguel Produce is now positioned to grow its production out of the West and better serve its customers.

San Miguel Produce is a fourth-generation family farm focused on growing and processing nutrient-dense greens under brands: San Miguel Produce, Cut ‘N Clean Greens and Jade, Asian Greens. Since 1976, San Miguel has been farming on the coastal plains of Oxnard, CA and throughout Ventura County. With our fresh-cut processing plant located near our fields, we harvest to order to ensure our valued customers get the very best farm-fresh greens…which is our definition of “Farm Fresh, Grower Direct.”
