November 16, 2021 By Bakers Journal
Richmond, Va. — Nature’s Touch Frozen Foods, a supplier of frozen fruits and vegetables for Canada and the United States, will build a $40.3-million facility to expand in Virginia.
The company will establish a 126,000-square-foot facility built by InterChange Group in Warren County to increase production. Raw materials will be imported directly there for processing and distribution. The facility will provide 67 new jobs.
Nature’s Touch is one of the largest suppliers of frozen fruit to retailers in North America, Australia and Japan. It was founded in 2004 and is headquartered in Saint-Laurent, Que., a freezing and packing facility in Abbotsford, B.C., and a packing facility in Front Royal, Va.
The company sells a range of products and supports multiple private label programs in addition to its own brands. It is one of the largest buyers of fruit globally.
“Nature’s Touch is excited to extend and expand its presence in Warren County,” said Dan Jewell, Nature’s Touch chief operation officer. “After extensive evaluation, we determined that Front Royal continues to be the most strategic location for the company’s hub facility for the East Coast United States. This, combined with the opportunity to extend the company’s ongoing strategic partnership with InterChange, made the decision to build the facility in Warren County an easy one for Nature’s Touch.”
