Red Sun Farms, a greenhouse grower with locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, announced that it is in the process of adding 35 acres of growing space for the 2021 winter grower season.
 
This new addition comes on the heels of a 63.8 acre, three-phase projected in Kingsville, Ontario, Canada that was completed in 2020. Red Sun’s Mexico branch also completed a 25-acre expansion last year. 
 
“The Red Sun Farms team continues to build its business on sustainable growth across Mexico, USA, and Canada. This announcement supports our commitment to deliver the very best produce to our customers throughout the year,” states Carlos Visconti, CEO of Red Sun Farms Canada & the USA, “We are investing in our facilities to align with our retail partners demands.”
 
With the new growth, Red Sun has 476 acres of growing space in Mexico and 211 in Canada. In the U.S., Red Sun has already announced plans to expand its distribution center in Pharr, Texas, increasing the facility’s size to 106,000 square feet. Kingsville will also add 22,500 square feet of cold storage in 2021, pushing its total to 62,500 square feet.
