Thursday August 23rd, 2018 (San Antonio, Texas) — Mucci Farms announces the opening of a brand new distribution facility in San Antonio, Texas, strategically located to optimize service in the southern United States. “We are thrilled to continue our expansion into the US with a southern facility that can help us service the region effectively,” said Joe Spano, Vice President of Mucci International Marketing. “As a company committed to efficient execution, our main focus was to reduce food miles as well as our carbon footprint to better serve our partners and customers.” The company plans to begin operations over the next 8-10 weeks.
