Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced that Netherlands-based NewCold is investing $90 million to build a 140-foot-high, 25 million cubic feet sub-zero cold storage warehouse in Burley, Idaho, US. This will be one of the largest frozen storage facilities of its kind in the United States.

“Providing state-of-the-art, conveniently located cold storage is a critical part of keeping Idaho producers’ operating costs down and our value-added Idaho products competitive in the dynamic global market,” said Governor Otter. “This huge new addition to our food distribution chain will help keep Idaho on the leading edge of innovation when it comes to farm-to-market efficiency and delivering high-quality, Idaho-grown foods to the world.
“The economic ties between the Netherlands and the United States are strong and vibrant. These ties support 740,000 American jobs and Dutch companies like NewCold have invested more than $300 billion in the U.S.,” said Henne Schuwer, Dutch Ambassador to the United States. “NewCold’s innovation in cold storage will help Idaho maintain its reputation as a leading agricultural producer,” added Ambassador Schuwer.
