Mahi Pono Packing Facility Opens

Limes and lemons are now being packed for sale in Mahi Pono’s 117,000 square-foot packing facility.  Read about the packing operation in Melissa Tanji’s feature article in The Maui News.
Limes rumble along during processing at the M.P. Packing Co. facility on Oct. 25. Mahi Pono Vice President of Harvest and Post-Harvest Operations Chris Miller said the facility uses a blend of automation and manual labor to grade, clean, dry, size, count and pack the limes. He said Persian limes were being processed and the company also grows Tahitian limes on the 10,000 acres it has planted with the fruit. The limes are currently being sold on Oahu and Maui. Miller said the company will be processing onions and coffee in the building soon and a cold storage area is being constructed. He said the processing center will be used while a larger facility is built off Pulehu Road near the intersection with Hansen Road. — The Maui News / MATTHEW THAYER photo
