for the Sale of Living Produce

US: Green PolkaDot Box announces 20-Year Contract (TM) with J&J Distributing

After purchasing 40 acres of land in Utah to develop new greenhouses, Green PolkaDot Box now announced that it has secured another contract for the sale of its Living Produce(TM) with J&J Distributing, an international organic produce distributor headquartered of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The 20-year contract, valued at over $70,000,000, will be executed in several stages over the term of the Agreement. Beginning in January 2014, the first phase includes mandates for the development of organically grown bell peppers in all color varieties, red and green leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, cucumbers and assorted tomato varieties, including organic heirlooms. While the initial contract phase is limited to the mentioned varieties, future phases will include a larger selection of the Living Produce(TM) as growing and processing capacities increase.

As announced earlier this month, GPDB has purchased its first 40 acre site and broken ground on development in Spring City, Utah for fulfillment of this contract which will commence upon completion of the first phases of development for Living Produce Growing Center in Utah.

Green PolkaDot Box is extremely proud of its partnership with J&J Distributing. Referring to the landmark agreement, GPDB CEO Rod Smith commented: "Our deal with such a high quality, reputable purveyor of organic produce is both an equitable and significant move to ensure the growth of our Living Produce(TM) program, leading to benefits for all health-minded consumers."

Mr. James Hannigan, President of J&J Distributing, stated, "J&J Distributing is excited to partner with the Green PolkaDot Box. It is a company dedicated to sustainable organic farming in an indoor environment offering constant supplies of organic fresh produce. Both companies are committed to offering everyone the opportunity to eat a healthy nutritious diet while doing everything possible to reduce the massive carbon footprint left by traditional conventional farming. Organic is the future and the future is now."

The partnership with J&J Distributing enables GPDB to develop and grow an immense variety of organic produce for its genius delivery platform; but it also opens up a sustainable program for distribution of a steady, year-round supply of Living Produce(TM) and other organic varieties to the wholesale buyers--in the U.S. at affordable prices.
