NYSSA – Full steam ahead.

That is report from Emelio Castañeda, president of Field Fresh Foods last week regarding a new onion packing and shipping facility in the former Golden West building in south Nyssa.

“We are chomping at the bit to be shipping out of that location,” said Castañeda.

Field Fresh Foods, a Los Angeles company that is the nation’s largest supplier of fresh-packed fruits and vegetables for public schools, announced plans in July to open the Nyssa facility. The firm plans to hire up to 45 people when the facility is operating fulltime.

“We want to expand,” said Castañeda . . .
