Local Bounti Corporation, an indoor agriculture company, will showcase its recently launched chef-inspired, grab-and-go salads at The International Fresh Produce Association (IFPA) Global Produce & Floral Show in Orlando, Florida on October 27-29.
"We are excited for IFPA attendees to sample our new salads, which utilize our method of indoor farming to sustainably grow fresher and more flavorful leafy greens," said Brian Cook, president of Local Bounti. "We believe our Stack & Flow Technology™ is the future of farming and the reason behind our rapid growth. With our high-tech greenhouse facilities around the U.S., we can provide consumers across the country with our produce varieties and salads grown sustainably with sunlight, using 90 percent less water and land, and lasting longer in your fridge."
Local Bounti's new salad kits come in Poppy Power and Modern Greek flavors.
The two recently launched salads focus on the following flavor profiles to meet the needs of the increasing number of flexitarian consumers:
- Poppy Power (240 calories) – The Northwest-grown Romaine Crisp and Bok Choy are topped with cranberries, a carrot, and broccoli slaw along with a blend of seeds (pepitas, sunflower, and flax) and finished with a poppy seed dressing.
- Modern Greek (230 calories) – The Northwest-grown Romaine Crisp is topped with tomatoes, feta, quinoa, red onion, chickpeas, and chopped olives and finished with a Tzatziki dressing.
IFPA attendees can visit Booth #3253 to sample the salads and learn more about its grab-and-go salad program, which is currently available in the Pacific Northwest with plans to expand into the Southeast and West regions early next year.
