Driscoll's Mexico opens new greenhouse

Vice President of Driscoll’s Mexico, Mario Steta, officially opened the new greenhouse by cutting the red ribbon on December 7th.

The opening of this greenhouse is just phase 1 out of 5 in total. Driscoll’s has chosen to work with Codema Systems Group from the Netherlands in cooperation with Inverca, a Spanish greenhouse builder. Once all phases are built, the benching system has the capability to automate and control the growing process of these young plants from start to finish at app 285.000m2.

As the market leader in the fresh organic and conventional berry market, Driscoll’s is a trusted brand for consumers looking for organic strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. This commitment to organic nursery plants for all of Driscoll’s independent organic growers demonstrates Driscoll’s leadership in meeting and exceeding U.S. organic standards. In order to stay one step ahead and ensure a continuous supply of strawberries, Driscoll’s has chosen to automate the production of young plants.

Every Driscoll’s berry begins life in a nursery. Nursery plants are grown, harvested and carefully packed and delivered to independent growers for commercial fruit production. Growing certified organic starter plants from the nursery to provide organic growers healthy, pest and disease free plants is a priority for Driscoll’s.
With more than 100 years of family farming heritage, Driscoll’s has been a pioneer in the berry industry across many fronts. Driscoll’s is one of the few berry companies with a dedicated global research and development program focusing on growing proprietary berry varieties exclusively for their independent growers to deliver a superior berry flavor experience. Driscoll’s mission is to continually delight berry consumers through the alignment with their customers and berry growers.

By challenging the status quo and bringing solutions to the market that are well designed, easy to expand and user friendly.
