Campofrio Food Group has leased the 143,790 SF, refrigerated facility in SouthPoint Business Park, Virginia from The Hollingsworth Companies. Campofrio, one of the largest companies in the processed meats sector, are well known for their European style meat products sold across Europe. They have recently enjoyed a very rapid growth in the United states for a company that before 2014 was primarily a European focused company.
The Hollingsworth Companies has been building in Prince George County, Virginia since 1998. This facility was originally developed as a 108,960 SF distribution building and later it was expanded to 143,790 SF with 34,800 SF of refrigerated space. With the Campofrio lease, just over 50,000 SF of the dry space will be converted into additional refrigerated space making it the largest food grade, refrigerated building in The Hollingsworth Companies’ portfolio. Tom Wortham, SVP of Business Development for The Hollingsworth Companies stated, “Moving away from highly processed foods with a long shelf life to temperature-sensitive fresh food products requires food distribution closer to the customer. SouthPoint Business Park in Prince George, Virginia is an excellent location to reach the high-density population of the northeast market. Because consumers value convenience and fast delivery, demand for cooler distribution space is projected to continue as the growing food industry keeps refrigerated warehouse facilities at or near full capacity.”
