Fresh Del Monte opens fresh-cut facility in Qatar

Ahead of the upcoming World Cup, Fresh Del Monte’s operations in the Middle East completed a new fresh-cut facility to meet the expected heightened demand — as needed volumes on its products are expected to double during upcoming tourist events.

The facility in Doha, Qatar, is a joint venture between Fresh Del Monte and Doha National Food Industries W.L.L. It will supply a global quick service restaurant with ultra-fresh juice, fresh-cut fruits, fresh-cut veggies, freshly prepared sandwiches and freshly prepared salad bowls.

The typical volume for the region is 15,000 tons per month, which is expected to double during the next few months. The new facility will be able to produce five tons of shredded lettuce and three tons of other vegetables per day; 2,400 liters of freshly squeezed juice per day; and the kitchen will produce 500-750 salads, sandwiches and snacks per hour.

Construction of the facility, encompassing 2,200 square meters, began in October 2021 and was finished in September 2022. The commissioning of the leaf line was set up within three weeks, which included the equipment becoming operational and all audits being passed. Normal setup time is generally two months.
