Emergent Cold LatAm opens ‘Chile’s largest’ frozen food warehouse

Temperature-controlled storage and logistic solution provider, Emergent Cold LatAm, has opened 'Chile's largest' frozen food warehouse. Located in Talcahuano, a region renowned for its seafood and fruit production and exports, the warehouse represents a strategic enhancement of the local cold chain infrastructure. The facility, which has a storage capacity of 294,000 cubic metres and 37,000 pallets, is expected to generate 150 new jobs, as well as around 500 indirect jobs, bolstering the local economy. Joaquín Del Campo, MD for the Pacific region at Emergent Cold LatAm, said: "We are committed to supporting the Chilean seafood and agriculture industries. The increase in mackerel quotas and the growth in Coho salmon and IQF fruit production requires enhanced capacity for temperature-controlled storage, perfectly aligned with this new facility." Neal Rider, co-founder and CEO of Emergent Cold LatAm, added: "Chile's importance in the global food supply chain make it an important part of our regional investment strategy. This investment is part of our ongoing efforts to support the growth of the seafood and agriculture industries and other sectors requiring cold storage solutions." The company is planning an expansion phase for the new warehouse, which should be completed by early 2025. Total storage capacity following the expansion will be 389,000 cubic metres.
