Oxford Frozen Foods opens new blueberry facility in N.B.
The Chronicle Herald, 7/21/16 – Blueberry giant Oxford Frozen Foods’ mega-processing plant in northeastern New Brunswick is already the biggest of its kind in the world — but there are already long-term plans to double its capacity.
“This facility was designed to be doubled, to have that much beside it,” said Jordan Burkhardt, Oxford’s director of human resources, Thursday.
The more-than-$51-million processing plant opened a full year ahead of schedule in St. Isidore, N.B. because blueberry farmers there are now producing roughly three times as many of the berries per acre as they did a decade ago.
