US Expansion For Kingsville's Mucci Farms

A Kingsville greenhouse operator is expanding on the other side of the border.

Mucci Farms has announced a large-scale multi-year investment in Huron,Ohio.

The company says the investment is part of a three phase construction project that will feature the newest greenhouse technology with grow lights to extend the growing season. Construction has already begun and Mucci Farms expects produce from the facility will be available as soon as March 2018.

It says the investment in Ohio allows the company to reduce the food miles for its US retailers and consumers.

The company says it has been "actively exploring" a number of US expansion opportunities for the past 18 months.
