Student Event: Testa Produce Tour

Join EPIC for a tour of Testa Produce, a 106-year-old family-owned and -operated produce distributor that serve restaurants, hotels, schools, country clubs, sporting arenas and hospitals from Wisconsin to central Illinois. Situated on a former brownfield site, Testa’s LEED-Platinum refrigerated food service facility is the first of its kind in the U.S. and features sustainable technologies including a 50-kilowatt wind turbine and solar panels that together produce an average of 35 percent of the building’s energy needs, among other technologies. In addition to learning about the facility's green features, attendees will get to talk with Testa Produce President Peter Testa. Free transportation will be provided by EPIC, but RSVP as space is limited.

Please gather in front of University Ave. entrance of the Saieh Hall for Economics (5757 S. University Ave.) between 12:45 p.m. and 12:55 p.m. The shuttle will leave campus promptly at 1 p.m. and will return to campus plant for campus by no later than 3:30 p.m. Travel time is approximately 20 minutes each way.

Note the following requirements for the tour, which is open only to University of Chicago students:

  • No jewelry and no gum.

  • Tourees’ heads must also be covered by either a hat or hood, or a hairnet will be provided.

  • No open-toed shoes (flip flops, sandals, etc.)

  • Participants should also plan to bring a jacket because much of the plant is kept at freezing temperatures to store perishable food.

To learn more about the facility's green features, visit http://www.testaproduce.com/warehouse2.html
