The site also features LED lighting, recycled packaging material and software to monitor electric usage. Nearly 100,000 square feet of freezer and cooler space accommodates an increasing range of fresh perimeter products and market demand. The new site replaces KeHE’s former facility in Kennesaw, Ga.
