LT Foods Ltd., 160 Herrod Boulevard, South Brunswick 08810
Foods Ltd., a distributor of basmati rice, has leased a 120,500 square-foot distribution facility at 160 Herrod Boulevard in South Brunswick.
The building is owned by Forsgate Industrial Partners, a Dayton-based company that owns a number of properties throughout New Jersey. The lease was negotiated by a Cassidy Turley team led by Chuck Fern and Jason Barton.
The facility sits on approximately eight acres with parking for 75 cars and 24 trailers, as well as 22 tailgates and one drive-in door.
“Leveraging our relationships and industry knowledge, we were able to match the right tenant with a high-quality facility and ownership in a convenient location to meet both clients’ needs,” Fern said. “LT Foods needed a new facility to accommodate its growing distribution channel and burgeoning storage demands, and Forsgate happened to be marketing a prime property in a highly sought after submarket.”
#b#Frontier Cuts Flights At Trenton-Mercer#/b#
Frontier Airlines, the only commercial airline that flies out of Trenton-Mercer Airport, has permanently stopped offering flights to four midwestern cities: Nashville, St. Louis, Indianapolis, and Milwaukee. It has temporarily halted flights to Detroit, Minneapolis, and Cincinnati, according to press reports.
Company officials said the move was due to lack of demand. Frontier still offers 10 destinations at Trenton-Mercer, including Atlanta; Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; Chicago-Midway; and Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando, St. Augustine/Jacksonville, Tampa, and West Palm Beach in Florida.
In October Frontier began offering flights out of Philadelphia with plans to expand to seven, four of which — Orlando and Tampa, Florida, Chicago-Midway, and Charlotte, North Carolina — are in common with the destinations available from Trenton-Mercer.
The airline also pared back flights at New Castle Airport in Delaware after the Philadelphia flights began.

Novo Nordisk has launched an initiative called the Community Health Collaborative, which will support lifestyle programming in the Trenton area.
The Community Health Collaborative provides grants to local nonprofit groups pursuing urban health and wellness.
“Our first priority was to identify the critical challenges faced by communities around our U.S. offices, so that we could respond in a way that was not only important to Novo Nordisk, but even more important to our neighbors,” said Diana Blankman, senior director, U.S., of corporate giving and social impact. “The need for more support in engendering healthy lifestyles aligns nicely with our own expertise and allows us to make an especially meaningful impact.”
The initiative gave grants this year to the following programs:
Boys & Girl’s Club of Trenton and Mercer County’s Triple Play – Eat Right, Live Right, Move Right program.
The College of New Jersey Foundation’s SNACK Smart Nutrition and Conditioning for Kids Community Action Center’s Rise Healthy Initiatives 2015.
Isles of Trenton’s Clean and Green Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Greater Mercer County’s Nutritional Education and Wellness Program (N.E.W.).
