$21 Millon Investment Announced To Expand Refrigerated Warehouse Facility
February 1, 2019

Cloverleaf Cold Storage, a leading cold storage warehousing and food logistics company, has announced that the firm will invest $21 million to add over 100,000 square feet to its facility in the City of Chesapeake. The expansion will allow Cloverleaf Cold Storage to increase its current service volume of blast freezing, exporting, and importing, as well as accommodate additional refrigerated products for its current and new customers in the mid-Atlantic region.

Cloverleaf Cold Storage is a trusted partner to many of the largest food producers in the world. It operates a network of 19 warehouses across the United States, providing a variety of food grade storage, handling, and freezing services. Its Farmers Produce division offers value-added processing and logistics services to the protein industry. Cloverleaf serves over 800 customers, many with whom the company holds over 30-year relationships. The company’s facility in the City of Chesapeake is located on a 10-acre site in the Cavalier Industrial Park.

“Cloverleaf Cold Storage’s major investment in the City of Chesapeake will enable the company to increase its service volume to meet growing demand in the mid-Atlantic market as well as broaden its global logistics network through the Port of Virginia,” commented Governor Ralph S. Northam following the announcement. “We thank Cloverleaf Cold Storage for choosing to reinvest in the Commonwealth, contributing vital infrastructure for our thriving food and beverage processing industry and nearly doubling its workforce in Hampton Roads.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the City of Chesapeake to secure the project for Virginia and will support Cloverleaf’s job creation through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change in order to support employee training activities.
