FreshPoint Central Florida Hosts Grand Opening Ceremony

JANUARY 22, 2020

This morning, FreshPoint Central Florida hosted a grand opening ceremony and open house for government officials, customers, associates and other members of the community to celebrate the completion of the expanded, state-of-the-art 150,000 square foot facility.

Events included a ribbon cutting, facility tour, food demonstrations, tastings and more.

As a result of the expansion – which has doubled the facility in size – new features include:

  • A new culinary center for showcasing new products and customer menu development;
  • Additional equipment and space for the company’s FreshCuts processing operation, increasing the facility’s capabilities to provide custom cut fruit and vegetable products to customers;
  • Sustainability features such as LED lighting, energy-efficient coolers and a system which collects produce waste for use in composting and energy production.

“For more than 70 years, FreshPoint Central Florida has been a proud member of the Orlando community. We are very excited about the enhanced capabilities at this facility to enrich our customers’ overall experience of doing business with FreshPoint and support their success,” said Robert Gordon, President and Chief Executive Officer, FreshPoint. “Additionally, this expansion demonstrates FreshPoint’s commitment to its long-standing relationships with our local partners, including local farmers, suppliers and other business partners.”

Thanks to everyone who made this a great event!
