Charlie’s Produce, USA

Advanced Ripening Technologies has provided Charlies Produce with several turnkey projects to help them expand their ripening capacity across the West coast of the United States.

Advanced Ripening has worked with Charlies Produce since 2007 when they completed the first three tier rooms and from then has continued to provide tailor made solutions in their other existing facilities in Anchorage (AK), Seattle (WA) & Spokane (WA).

In 2014 Charlies Produce constructed a new purpose built cold storage facility in Portland (OR) to include 15 single wide, two tier 21 pallet pressurized banana ripening rooms.

We are currently in the process of helping Charlies Produce to establish a site in Los Angeles (CA) with the inclusion of 6 x 20 pallet & 2 x 32 pallet two tier double wide rooms due to be completed in the summer of 2015.

Any specialised equipment delivered from the UK and/or Europe was packaged and sent door to door by our freight forwarding company Cardinal Plus. Cardinal Plus organised all local customs & duties and kept Advanced Ripening informed with regular destination updates.
