One customer, Heron Farms in South Carolina, is turning sea level rise into sustainable agriculture, one delicious Sea Bean at a time. Heron Farms is North America's premier indoor saltwater vertical farm that grows salt-tolerant crops such as sea beans, sea pickles, and sea asparagus using predictive software and cutting-edge automated data collection and analysis methods. At the forefront of sustainable farming practices, Heron Farms distributes to retail, restaurants, and food service industries throughout 14 US states.

"We're on a mission to solve two of the 21st century's largest environmental problems, rising seawater levels, and excess carbon dioxide. We strategically chose plant-based packaging from good Natured as the best option to extend our brand values beyond the product we produce all the way through to the packaging itself," explained Sam Norton, Founder, and CEO of Heron Farms.

Meanwhile, ColdAcre in Whitehorse, Yukon, takes sustainable growing practices to the next level by providing year-round fresh food and growing solutions for far northern climates. ColdAcre provides wholesale and commercial fresh grown food in plant-based, certified compostable packaging from good natured, which is distributed through small independent grocers through to large chains, such as Save-On-Foods in the Yukon. ColdAcre is the only year-round food producer of greens in the Yukon and sells their farming system across Canada and the Arctic. Their systems source local jobs, reduce supply chain dependency, and bring high-quality fresh produce to communities making them more self-sufficient and sustainable.

"We made it a mandate when we started ColdAcre that we wouldn't contribute to the single-use plastics problem that's top of mind for many Canadians. We've been very pleased to be able to work with our like-minded partner, good Natured, as we prepare to triple our production in the coming months and offer our products in plant-based, compostable packaging," said Tarek Bos-Jabber, CEO of ColdAcre.
