Emergent Cold (“Emergent”) one of the world’s fastest growing cold chain solutions companies, announced it is making a strategic investment in Piura, Perú, which marks Emergent’s initial investment in Latin America and lays the foundation to build out a broader network in Perú and across the region.
“With this investment, Emergent adds Perú’s impressive fruit exports to its growing network of global services, and brings Emergent’s expertise and innovative solutions to its customers in Perú” said David Palfenier, Emergent’s President for Latin America.
“We will implement our two core strategies in Latin America: support globally our customers who import and export in the region; and create national integrated logistics solutions for the major markets” said Neal Rider, Global CEO of Emergent Cold.
The new Piura Perú facility will incorporate the latest technologies in IQF processing to provide world class quality, yields and food safety to its customers.
