Morning Star makes expansions to increase capacity for peeled, diced, specialty and fire-roasted products

Morning Star continuously strives to innovate and expand our operations to ensure we meet customer demand in the most efficient and cost- effective means possible.

For the 2020 season our Santa Nella facility, Liberty Packing Company, is undergoing key expansions:

The already massive tomato fire- roaster will be doubling its capacity from 25 tons/hour to 50 tons/hour.

A new dedicated processing line is being built in what was once the peach processing building.  The new dedicated line will include a steam peeler, which expands total peeling capacity from 290 tons/hour to 410 tons/hour with, consequently, additional dicing capacity. In addition, this new line will be used to expand Liberty’s specialty, organic and R&D production capabilities.

With the introduction of this new dedicated processing line, Liberty will be able to produce additional formulated industrial products, which includes fire- roasted formulated products.
