Fresh produce supplier Fresca is turning its Evesham packhouse into a standalone unit to take on contract packing for other suppliers.

The new business ValeFresh will take over the site from Fresca's importing company Primafruit and its Mack Vegetables division. It will still pack for Fresca companies but will be looking for new business.

"We expect to grow the customer base and ensure higher productivity from the new structure," said chairman Christopher Mack.
