As the deli cases continue to diversify and fresh items further overlap, Mann Packing is expanding its footprint and its positioning Eastward. Fresh Directors and Managers on the perimeter will be pleased to read that, with the support of parent company Fresh Del Monte Produce’s wholly owned distribution facilities, the supplier will now be servicing several major retailers in North Carolina.
“We have created a turnkey program at Mann’s with the customer in mind,” says Chip Obracay, Vice President of National Sales. “Not only do we have a wide array of products, but we also have a large distribution network from coast to coast, which lowers costs for our customers, while also providing them with wide-ranging quality products in a timely fashion.”
By leveraging Fresh Del Monte’s third-party inland logistics company, Tricont Trucking & Logistics, Mann Packing is able to provide customers nationwide with multiple deliveries of fresh fruits and vegetables, a press release explained.
Mann’s integrated supply chain allows customers to purchase products and have them processed and delivered, all directly via Mann Packing. The efficiency of this system allows for an optimization in shelf-life for products at a lower cost to the customer.
Mann’s products now arrive at the distribution center in the morning and are shipped to the customer by the end of the same day.
With plans already in motion to expand even further to provide more customers with its fresh and value-added products, we will be sure to keep an eye out for the latest news to report on this and other growing companies in the fresh case.
