” Our goal has always been to offer premium specialized products and services to our customers,” added Mr. Matouk. “With World Fresh Produce, now part of the South Mill Champs family, we are even better positioned to meet the diverse needs of customers in North America.” Mr. Matouk will lead SMC’s product sourcing operations as Vice President of Global Product Sourcing going forward.
The addition of World Fresh Products to the South Mill Champs group of companies enhances World Fresh Produce’s reach through South Mill Champs’ existing distribution and replacement network of cold chain facilities, strategically located across North America. South Mill Champs utilizes its North American farms, advanced cold chain logistics capabilities and distribution network to facilitate fast and efficient daily deliveries to all major markets in the United States and Canada.
