The greenhouse growing company Edible Garden announces a record number of sales during the month of November 2020 at nearly $1 million.
"Not only was this Thanksgiving the best on record for sales – 100% year-over-year, and more than 900,000 plants shipped and sold – our packaging technology helped to significantly reduce waste for our retail partners from double-digits to under 8%. We are thrilled to bring our Zero-Waste Inspired herbs and lettuces to our ever growing customer network and expand access to USDA-Certified Organic, locally grown sustainable product offerings," said Jim Kras, CEO of Edible Garden®. "Now more than ever, Edible Garden's food safety protocols and product innovations are proving to decrease waste while continuing to expand sales."
Edible Garden®, Inc., is a privately held, company active in locally grown organic produce and herbs backed by Zero-Waste Inspired® next generation farms. Edible Garden is active with its safety-in-farming protocols, sustainable packaging and patented self-watering in-store displays. The company currently operates state-of-the-art greenhouse and processing facilities in Belvidere, New Jersey, and in partnership with growers throughout the U.S.
Edible Garden produce includes USDA-Certified Organic Premium Fresh Cut Herbs, Hydro Fresh Basil, Organic 4" Living Herbs, and Premium Organic Living Lettuces that are currently available at major and local retailers including Meijer, Walmart, Kroger, Wakefern/ShopRite, Hannaford, Target, Sweetgreen, among many others.
Interest in Edible Garden culinary herbs, produce and living lettuces shows a strong shift in consumer buying patterns. "Consumers are buying more and investing in longer shelf life items. The sustainable produce category has changed dramatically due in part to the Covid19 pandemic and USDA-Certified Organic, locally grown sustainable product offerings."
Edible Garden recently launched an equity crowdfunding campaign via crowd investment platform Republic, which will help fund the commercialization of the company's advanced environmentally controlled greenhouses. This will further reduce the company's carbon footprint and expand access to its USDA-Certified Organic, sustainable Produce offerings. More about the campaign which runs through January 2021 is here:
