South Africa: New cold storage facilities for citrus & pomefruit

On 1 June 2017 the first of three new cold rooms constructed by PE Cold Storage for the citrus and pomefruit industries will open at the Coega Industrial Development Zone, situated at the newest of Port Elizabeth’s two harbours. The other two are expected to come into production four to six weeks thereafter. Each cold room provides 2,500 pallets.
“The expansion of the new facility amounts to a further investment of R100 million [€7.2 million], which will result in the doubling of the existing capacity of 7,500 pallets to around 15,000 pallets storage,” says Mark Jensen, director of PE Cold Storage.
