Palmetto, Fla.-based West Coast Tomato LLC is focusing on worker safety, said Bob Spencer, vice president of sales.

“We just continue to invest in our workers and making sure they have what they need to perform the jobs and they’re able to work in a safe environment, so we continue to upgrade our safety staff,” he said.

The company also has added some palletizers to its packing operations in the last year, Spencer said.
