POSEYVILLE -

Illinois-based Frey Farms is celebrating the opening of its new cold-pressed processing center in Poseyville. Financial details of the project were not released, however the company says the 70,000-square-foot facility would add "a number of jobs" in southern Indiana.

The facility will produce large batch quantities of cold-pressed juice and puree ingredients. Frey Farms says the juicery will serve as the company's central location for processing 6,000 gallons of cold-pressed, unpasteurized watermelon juice per day with more than 300 tons of Frey Farms watermelons coming through the facility per week.

Frey Farms produces fresh fruits and vegetables such as watermelon, cantaloupe and sweet corn. The company also makes and distributes Tsamma Watermelon Juice.

"This is a significant milestone that expands our family business," said Sarah Frey, chief executive officer of Frey Farms. "Ingredient production is a natural extension for our farms and a strategic growth opportunity for Tsamma Juice. With the opening of the processing facility, we're able to closely monitor the use of raw materials and ensure the watermelons used for juicing are fresh, leading to superior quality for our existing retail partnerships and new customer opportunities."

The company did not specify the number of jobs created by the Poseyville facility. However, the company says the center completes all stages of in-house production. 

In addition to the company's Indiana operations, Sarah Frey and her four brothers operate farms and facilities in Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, and West Virginia.
