Lamb Weston starts building new storage center

Lamb Weston broke ground this month on a USD3.4m storage center in Pasco, Washington, USA. The 50,000sqf building is keyed to an expansion of the frozen potato giant’s Richland manufacturing center, where it is investing USD200mto build a second French fry line. It is the largest buyer of Washington-grown potatoes. “With the expansion in Richland, we’re going to need more potatoes, so we’re going to need more potato storage,” explained Shelby Stoolman, spokeswoman for Lamb Weston, according to the local press. Construction in Richland is on track to open the line this fall as planned, Stoolman said.
