On Aug. 23 Mucci Farms announced the opening of its distribution facility in San Antonio, Texas that is strategically located to optimize services in the south. The company plans to begin operations during the next 8-10 weeks.
“We are thrilled to continue our expansion into the US with a southern facility that can help us service the region effectively,” said Joe Spano, vice president of Mucci International Marketing. “As a company committed to efficient execution, our main focus was to reduce food miles as well as our carbon footprint to better serve our partners and customers,” Spano said.
The announcement follows the company’s first harvest from Phase 1 of a 3-Phase 60-Acre Huron, Ohio expansion. The organization has been actively searching for a strategic opportunity to serve current and potential clients in the south and southwestern US. “San Antonio was a logical city for us because it is a major southern crossing, and this location will help us increase efficiencies and assist with logistics,” said Danny Mucci, president of Mucci International Marketing.
