South Mill expands distribution network
South Mill Champs, one of North America's largest high-quality mushroom growers, is opening its seventh U.S. distribution center in Sacramento, CA. The new Sacramento Distribution Center will supply regional foodservice and retail markets with high-quality fresh Champs Mushrooms, Stuffed Baby Bella Caps and other seasonal produce.
The distribution center spans more than 13,500 square feet and includes a new 10,000 square-foot food storage cooler and state-of-the-art food-processing line that meet the highest food-safety standards. The Sacramento Distribution Center, equipped with a cheese-stuffing line, allows the company to meet the increased demand for its Stuffed Baby Bella Caps sold under its Champs Mushrooms brand.
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 now Sacramento. The distribution centers provide high-quality mushrooms delivered directly from South Mill Champs mushroom farms located in the US and Canada.
"Sacramento is a logical extension of our distribution network given the proximity of our mushroom farms in British Columbia," said Michael Richmond, the South Mill Champs vice president of sales. "This distribution center and the recent expanded growing capacity at our British Columbia mushroom farms allow us to meet the increasing demand for high-quality mushroom products in the central and northwest regions of California."
"As consumers want products that align with their values," said Richmond, "we expect demand for fresh and innovative mushroom products to grow as well. We are passionate about our mission to educate consumers on what we call mushrooms' Trifecta of Goodness — great tasting, great for you, and gentle on the planet."
