News | Portiso industrial doors for the production of bread, meat, fruits, vegetables & dairy in Panama | ColdKit

Riba Smith is a leading supermarket chain in Panama. In April 2014, the company invested 73 million euros in an unique infrastructure in the country: a production and logistics centre covering all types of food sold by Riba Smith, allowing the chain to grow and produce in these facilities.

This ambitious multi sectorial project will have five main buildings for the production of bread, meat, dairy, fruits and vegetables. According to recent news, the products generated in this industrial complex will be distributed in the four Riba Smith’s headquarters, as well as in the units which are to be constructed, but also in several other supermarkets.
