US (TX): 10-acre expansion completed for Temple-based greenhouse

Revol Greens has completed the facility expansion of its Temple, TX greenhouse. The site's step-up to 20 acres scales the company's output to meet accelerated local Texas consumer demand for Revol Greens' fresh, greenhouse-grown organic baby leaf and romaine head lettuce programs. It marks a significant milestone in Revol Greens' commitment to serve Texas (and beyond) by product delivered from its greenhouse to local stores and restaurants within 24 – 48 hours of harvest to customers including Sprouts, Walmart, Target, Costco, Amazon Fresh, Aldi, US Foods, and United Supermarkets.

"We are thrilled to share this exciting news with our customers and partners," said Michael Wainscott, CEO of Revol Greens. "Since opening our Temple greenhouse in May of this year, the team, community, and customer's response has surpassed our expectations – and the full launch of our phase one strategy will help deliver upon those commitments."

The expansion introduces its head lettuce program in Texas, which will include organic and conventional varieties of butter leaf and romaine lettuce during a time period where field alternatives make the tenuous transition to Yuma, Arizona. Throughout 2023, Revol Greens has significantly expanded its romaine program, and now Revol's romaine heads are sold in over 2,500 retail stores nationwide. This program has continued to see significant growth as customers look for consistent lettuce offerings, given the headwinds the broader lettuce industry has been facing.

"The macro environment continues to be a challenge, stressing critical factors of our food supply – from climate change, labor shortages, and continued inflationary trends," Wainscott continued. "Our customers in Texas and beyond have sought solutions for these factors, which has led to our most rapid launch to date. From our nationwide romaine program to our robust organic offering, we provide optionality and security of supply to our customers."
