NORTH KINGSTOWN — A new fresh processing facility and culinary innovation center is under construction at Quonset Business Park and will add 250 jobs to the Rhode Island economy.
Infinity Fresh Kitchen, a subsidiary of Retail Business Services, a company of Ahold Delhaize USA, owners of Stop & Shop and other grocery chains, is behind the project at 320 Commerce Park Rd.
The facility will process fresh food items for grocery stores, including cut fruit and cut vegetables, leaf, grain and pasta salads, sandwiches, wraps, and other items commonly found in deli or grab-and-go sections of supermarkets.
Initially, the facility will serve the Hannaford and Stop & Shop brands.
They will pair with Taylor Farms, a Salinas, California-based, food service company that produces fresh-cut fruits and vegetables, to manage the facility’s operations and workforce.
