Fruit processing, storage facility planned for Michigan
South Haven — Officials say a fruit processing and cold storage facility could bring up to 200 jobs to southwestern Michigan.
The Michigan Blueberry Growers Association in 2012 bought 42 acres in South Haven. MBG Marketing, recently secured a utility incentive agreement worth up to $150,000.
MBG Marketing plans to sell part of the property and MBG, which does business as Naturipe, would have a processing facility.
No formal plans have yet been submitted to the city. Initial plans called for 150,000 square feet of processing space for MBG Marketing and another business.
