US: Edible Garden adds two contract growers

Edible Garden (a Terra Tech subsidiary) has added two contract farmers to its cooperative of local growers of fresh and local produce. The addition of these new farmers, based out of Virginia and New Jersey, bring the Company's national contract farmer count to eight.

In addition to supplying their own herb and lettuce products, the farmers will also grow, cut, pack and ship Edible Garden's living Superleaf Spring Mix lettuce, which is exclusively licensed to the company, for supermarket stores in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region.

Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech, stated, "Edible Garden plans to disrupt the existing lettuce space and to expand its presence in the U.S. national cut lettuce and living herbs market. We are confident that these latest additions to the Edible Garden family, which will produce our licensed Superleaf lettuce, among other products, will contribute positively to our expansion plans. Edible Garden produce is only sold within a few hours' drive of our farms to ensure the Company's customers receive the freshest farmed produce on the market today. Adding new contract farmers in Virginia and New Jersey will expand our reach in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions."

Edible Garden produces local and sustainably grown hydroponic produce which are GFSI certified, Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Kosher. The company also carries a line of USDA certified organic herbs, including the following potted living herbs: chives, basil, parsley, oregano, dill, cilantro, mint, rosemary, sage and thyme. In addition to Edible Garden's organic range of lettuces and herbs, the company also features multiple vitamin and supplement brands.
