Innovative achievements

  • Cherry Hill Coolstores was the first to install a potato grader to service the seed industry.
  • First coolstore with the ability and machinery to intake seed from bulk trucks, instead of bins.
  • First coolstore provider to find a buyer for surplus seed that some growers have no sale for.
  • The only coolstore provider to install a washing plant which is capable of washing seed that has rot in it, hence saving the majority of seed for the owner.
  • The first coolstore provider to grade seed as it proceeds through the cutter.
