KINGSVILLE, ONTARIO – With the increasing demand of locally grown greenhouse produce, DelFrescoPure is expanding greenhouse production to 25 acres.
The expansion will be in full production by September in order to fulfill marketplace demands for high quality Ontario greenhouse grown tomatoes and strawberries for 2021-2022 winter production.
“With the demand for locally grown Ontario greenhouse tomatoes, DelFrescoPure® decided to leverage the demand with expansion plans,” said Carl Mastronardi, president of Del Fresco. “We’re planning three phases to keep up with consumer demand for tomatoes and strawberries.”
The expansion features innovative technology for growing in all seasons including energy curtains and grow lights to provide over three quarters of a half million square-foot controlled microclimate environment for growing tomatoes.
“We are proud to offer our retail partners and consumers high quality locally grown greenhouse tomatoes from September 2021 winter production season,” said Ray Mastronardi, vice president of sales. “The decision to expand the winter tomato program was made clear from our retail partners asking for more acreage to meet the demand of the consumers."
