Toward the end of 2012, the company plans to start expanding its Gilroy packing facility.

“It looks like we’ll construct an additional line for red and yellow bell peppers for next year,” Aiello said. The plan is to double capacity on an existing 5,000-square-foot building.

Uesugi’s green bells from Bakersfield are now packed in Gilroy, but reds and yellows are still field-packed.

“We’re looking for ways to make that a little more efficient,” Aiello said.

I buy jalapenos, fresno chili, new mexico (big jims), and California chili from Morgan Hill but mostly from Stockton. My question is: will you have these chili's and how much will they cost? The reason I go to Stockton is cuz they sell at a very good price.

Aiello believes it is ok for children to work long hours in the fields. He even smiles and says that Americans don't know that their food comes from the hands of children. http://www.nbcbayarea.com/investigations/series/children-in-the-field/ Modern day slavery!
