NewStar Fresh Foods invests in processing capabilities at Mexicali facility

NewStar Fresh Foods, shipper of iceless green onions in North America, announced plans to make a significant capital investment in its Estrella Nueva facility, located in Mexicali, Mexico. The company intends to add a variety of high-technology equipment, including mechanized optical sorters, precision slicers, and form-fill machinery.  

“We are making this investment as part of our ongoing strategy to excel in our space with state of the art growing capability, processing expertise, and food safety excellence, which will support our entire Mexico infrastructure,” said NewStar owner and CEO Anthony Vasquez. “That focus has already led to a significant increase in demand from our customers looking for customized solutions utilizing our Mexican based production.”  

The new equipment is designed to produce custom cuts and packs that meet the specific needs of today’s foodservice, food processing, manufacturing, and home meal kit companies. “This investment will help us achieve one of our strategic initiatives of delivering innovative, customized, and ‘in the box’ ingredient solutions to our customers at higher volumes, year-round, without sacrificing quality or shelf life,” added Mr. Vasquez.
