The Loxahatchee, Fla.-based grower-shipper plans to begin construction of the coolers in November after finishing this fall’s Georgia season, said Brian Rayfield, vice president of business development and marketing.
Currently, J&J’s coolers can refrigerate 50 loads.
After the additions are completed, the operation should be able to increase capacity by 50%, Rayfield said.
The company also has purchased tractors and other farming equipment, he said.
“We have re-invested into the land, equipment and infrastructure at our Georgia operations,” Rayfield said.
