WOBURN, Mass. – Verde Farms, a producer and processor of grass-fed, free-range beef, announced that it opened a new processing facility in Mullica Hill, New Jersey. The company said the facility will be US Dept. of Agriculture Organic and level 2 SQF-certified and it will process frozen and fresh beef into a variety of vacuum-packed products.  

“Opening our own processing facility emphasizes our foundational commitment to offer the highest-quality products, while maintaining transparency and a consistently rapid response to our customers’ needs,” said Dana Ehrlich, CEO of Verde Farms. “In addition to now owning a significant portion of our own product processing, we’re happy to offer the benefits of our state-of-the-art processing facility to other specialty meat companies who normally wouldn’t meet the high daily volume requirements typical of larger, modern facilities.”

The new facility is located adjacent to Mullica Hill Cold Storage. That facility provides USDA ID services and is centrally located to serve customers in New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania. Finished products from Verde can also be distributed nationwide via its proximity to the New Jersey Turnpike.

“Verde Farms has been a valued customer for over 12 years — and I’ve been a strong supporter of all the company has stood for since the very beginning,” said Fred Sorbello, founder and president of Mullica Hill Group Cos. “Having been with them since their inception, offering space for Verde to build out its processing capability at Mullica Hill was a natural and logical extension of the relationship and we look forward to the company’s continued success.”
