IQF / FREEZING SERVICES
Our fluidized bed tunnel freezer has the capability to freeze a wide variety of produce items to customer defined specifications and under high food safety standards. We are equipped to wash, slice, or dice to customer demands. Located in close proximity to regional growing areas, our freezing services can provide the opportunity for growers who do not have freezing capabilities to have their product co-packed and stored for future sales to their customers.
Market timing and sales speculation decisions can be accommodated with frozen products that are not possible with fresh, perishable items, where the perishability factor mandates immediate sales irrespective of whether the market demand is favorable. Additionally, industrial contracts are often of such large volumes that “just in time” production is not possible given the instability of weather and growing cycles. Producing when available and storing for subsequent delivery is the only way to accommodate such large contracts.
Thermal Processing Services
South Mill offers the use of our infrastructure to provide co-packing and other processing services for growers and producers. These services include blanching, roasting/grilling, slicing, dicing, and many other processing options. We understand the varying needs of customers, so in addition to in-house specifications, we have positioned ourselves to be able cater to our customers’ precise custom specifications.
COLD, FROZEN, and DRY STORAGE
Adding to our already extensive line of offerings, South Mill brings a high level of service to refrigerated, frozen, and dry storage customers. We provide offerings such as: 24/7 operations, port pick-ups, LTL (less than trailer load), FTL (full trailer load), repackaging, and break-bulk services.
Services include: multiple temperature zones from -10F to 40F degrees, accommodating a varied line-up of produce items, and industrial frozen items from around the world. Temperature and video monitoring of this area ensure 100% up-time integrity of all products being housed.
Unlike many other large storage providers, we have built our business on being flexible when it comes to storage terms. Due to this flexibility, we are able to accommodate storage needs ranging from 1 week to 12+ months.

Custom Packaging Designed to Fit Your Needs!
CUSTOM PACKAGING FOR ALL
As a volume mushroom grower/packer/shipper, we have the high-speed wrapping technology, weighing lines, processing lines, and the knowledgeable supervision and personnel to handle the packaging requirements of a wide range of fresh, frozen, and dry food products. Customers can use our facilities as a resource to package their products efficiently for long distance transportation. Additionally, we can repackage or break down larger containers into smaller lots for distribution according to customer specifications. We are available to package for industrial, foodservice or retail re-handling.
These capabilities allow companies without infrastructure, such as offshore sales companies looking to establish a presence in the United States, to use South Mill as a third-party logistics provider, thereby streamlining their stateside fixed cost exposure. Being located near the air and seaports of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Wilmington, Delaware allows customers to bring their ocean shipping containers to our location for unloading and palletizing.
