Maglio Cos., Glendale, Wis., acquired Boston Fresh, LLC, Brockton, Mass. The operation’s new and expanded offerings will include fresh, whole and cut produce, custom repacked products, freshly made pico de gallo and salsas and cold-pressed juices. Boston Fresh will also offer cross dock, consolidation and various other logistics and storage services.
In order to meet customers’ growing demands, Boston Fresh will focus on tomatoes –ripening, washing, grading, sorting, sizing and repacking—along with other custom packed, value-added products like split case repacks, fresh herbs and its fresh-cut produce line, delivered to customers in the New England region.
“The addition of this facility to the Maglio family of companies will create continuity for our customers on the East Coast,” says Geno Valdes, chief operating officer of Maglio Cos. “This acquisition will add efficiency and flexibility to our existing supply chain, starting with our growers in Mexico, sending product through our McAllen import facility and on to reach our customers in the Northeast.”
Bruce Forman was appointed general manager of Boston Fresh.
“I am excited to drive growth within the Northeast region for Maglio Cos.,” he adds. “The upgraded facility provides all of the necessary tools to deliver safe, high-quality, value-added products to our local, regional and national customers.”
