Emergent Cold Latin America commenced operations at its latest cold-storage expansion in the Bucaramanga, Colombia, facility.

The expansion adds 4,100 pallet positions, for a total of 7,600 frozen-storage pallet positions at this location. In addition, the facility will start offering chilled storage services, with several hundred pallet positions available for chilled and ambient products. Emergent Cold LatAm also built blast-freezing tunnels to supplement the existing capacity.

This expansion in Bucaramanga follows the company’s acquisition in April 2022 of Frigorífico Metropolitano, a cold-storage company in Colombia that operates four facilities in key markets around the country.
