Loffredo Fresh Produce opened their new company facility, ‘Produce Innovations’, earlier this month. The company was honored for this project by the Greater Des Moines Partnership at their ‘Celebrate Business’ awards this week. The Greater Des Moines Partnership recognized Produce Innovations for their economic impact to the region, citing the 180 jobs and $8 million capital investment for their Norwalk project. Two other Norwalk companies have been previously recognized at this annual event - Des Moines Truck Brokers in 2010 and Capital City Fruit in 2012. Produce Innovations is now Norwalk’s largest employer and one of the largest in Warren County. The company is hosting a ribbon cutting and tours at their new facility on Wednesday, December 3 from 4:30-6:30 pm, at which the public is invited. Loffredo Fresh Produce remains headquartered in Des Moines, a facility which is four miles north of Produce Innovations on Highway28.
