PHOENIX — Inventure Foods, Inc., a specialty food marketer and manufacturer, is set to acquire two state-of-the-art IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) freezing tunnels for an estimated total purchase price of $3.9 million in 2014.

“We continue to look for opportunities to meet growing demand for our frozen fruit products, while also improving margins in our frozen fruit segment by increasing our internal freezing capabilities,” said Terry McDaniel, chief executive officer. “This intended investment is our latest move in that operational strategy. When this equipment is coupled with the freezing assets we acquired this year at Willamette Valley Fruit Co. and Fresh Frozen Foods, we will have made significant progress toward meeting our frozen fruit processing requirements internally.”

Inventure expects to install the new tunnels in the second quarter 2014, prior to the harvest season, at its berry processing facilities in Lynden, Wash., and Salem, Ore.
