MONTREAL — Next month, Muranaka Farm, Moorpark, Calif., plans to ship from a Los Angeles facility.

Vice president of sales and marketing John Killeen said April 14 at the Canadian Produce Marketing Association annual convention that the company has been shipping some product from the L.A. distribution center since November, but some time in May, it plans to ship exclusively from there.

He said it’s about 15,000 square feet of racked rooms in a cold storage facility.

“We were just getting too tight in Moorpark,” Killeen said.

Muranaka Farm grows and ships a handful of vegetables, specializing in year-round supplies of radishes and green onions.
