Lynch Family Companies is planning the addition of cold storage capacity adjacent to its plant in Luverne.
The cold storage facility will be a constructed on a 47-acre field that hosts the Luverne plant. Lynch sold 13 of those acres to Lineage Logistics, the world’s largest temperature-controlled industrial real estate investment trust and logistics solutions provider. Lineage Logistics will construct and operate the facility, according to a company press release.
Lynch plans to rent one-third of the space in the freezer for product storage, which will intend to alleviate supply-chain issues and allow customers access to fresher pork. The freezer will store products from three Lynch mills and two harvest plants. On-site storage will allow Lynch to ship its product to customers across the country more efficiently.
Lineage Logistics, based in Novi, Michigan, has a global network of more than 400 strategically located facilities totaling over two billion cubic feet of capacity in 19 countries across North America, Europe and Asia.
