Catania Mexico provides Catania Worldwide with the first stage of a vertically integrated design. We control our product from A to Z by growing, picking, packing and shipping from Mexico to Catania in the U.S. and Canada – ensuring maximum control of the product for quality, price, and food traceability. Catania Mexico grows, packs and ships lines from two areas; Atotonilco (just outside of Guadalajara) and Martinez de la Torre in the state of Veracruz. Our new packing shed in Atotonilco is 37,000 square feet with Primus certification on both shed and field. In the state of Morelos, we have discovered a microclimate that allows us to ship figs opposite season to California. Catania Mexico now ships “Black Mission” variety figs from October to May to both Canada and the United States. Our fields are 200 acres, and the expansion of our new packing shed has provided us with expanded refrigeration and full pre-cooling facilities. Our next project, which will run out of the fig facility, will be an aggressive Hass avocado program, where we will pack, ship and distribute to Canada. This program will launch in September of 2017.
