South Mill Champs expands Atlanta distribution center
South Mill Champs, one of the largest high-quality mushroom growers in North America, announced it has expanded its Atlanta distribution center. In addition, the company acquired substantially all of the operating assets and name of Seven Stars, Inc., a potato and onion distributor which services the U.S. Southeast.
"Expanding our Atlanta Distribution Center by nearly three times allows us to meet the increasing demand for high-quality mushrooms and produce in the region," said Michael Richmond, vice president of sales. "The additional capacity provided by our expanded distribution center space provides tremendous growth opportunities with our key partnerships in this growing market. We also look forward to working with Richard Sutherland and Seven Stars, Inc. on a successful transition of their potato and onion customers and a seamless integration of their employees into the South Mill Champs family of companies, which will further build out our existing produce operations."
South Mill Champs operates a network of distribution centers across the United States with distribution centers in Winter Haven, FL, Atlanta, New Orleans, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. The expansion of the Atlanta distribution center will increase its ability to distribute high-quality mushrooms delivered directly from South Mill Champs mushroom farms located in the US and Canada.
