Because of legal ramifications and corporate issues involving the purchase, Daniel Whittles, Rosemont’s director of marketing and product development, said Rosemont officials were restricted in what they could say about the change.
Rosemont has distribution facilities in Nogales, Ariz.; Plant City, Fla.; Tifton, Ga.; and Faison, N.C.
Lemke said C.H. Robinson plans to keep Rosemont’s 100 employees.
The Rosemont addition is the second major change C.H. Robinson has announced in a month.
In August, C.H. Robinson expanded its international presence by opening a European-based produce sourcing operation called C.H. Robinson Sourcing SAS in Avignon, France.
That division focuses on global fresh produce trading.
