Dole Packaged Foods LLC opened a frozen fruit facility in McDonough, Ga., that will complement its existing operations in Atwater, Calif., and Decatur, Mich. 

When at capacity, the 60,000 ft2 automated facility will have four manufacturing lines that can produce 60 million lb of frozen fruit annually. Dole has partnered with United States Cold Storage, which will handle the warehousing and distribution in an adjacent building with an automated storage/retrieval system.

Production has started in a phased approach, and the facility should be fully operational by September 2021.
