Greenhouse grower plans to open three new facilities

Indoor leafy green grower BrightFarms is preparing to participate in SEPC Southern Exposure. The company will provide attendees with insights into the three high-tech greenhouse farms it plans to open later this year and showcase its four Crunch Kit™ salads.

The company is opening three high-tech greenhouse farms later this year.

Currently operating six greenhouses, BrightFarms delivers greens to consumers across the Midwest and East Coast. With the opening of its three new high-tech greenhouses - in Illinois, Texas, and Georgia - just around the corner, the company is building its greenhouse salad supply chain to deliver partners a secure supply of fresh, high-quality indoor-grown greens that are the growth driver for the category.

"2024 is going to be a breakout year for us," says Abby Prior, chief commercial officer. "Our new greenhouses will provide the capacity we need to fill the increased demand of our retailers and consumers for fresher leafy greens. "

One recent component of BrightFarms' success is its line of Crunch Kit salad kits. This includes its signature Sunny Crunch™ lettuce as the salad's base, a premium choice to what has traditionally been offered in retail salad kits, and its bold and flavorful toppings.

The company recently added two new flavors--Mediterranean and Southwest Chipotle--to its Crunch Kits lineup.

Recently, BrightFarms added to its Crunch Kits lineup with the introduction of two new flavors: Mediterranean and Southwest Chipotle. The Mediterranean Crunch Kit delivers a herby and tangy punch of flavor and features feta cheese, roasted lentils, herbed flatbread, and a Greek feta vinaigrette. The Southwest Chipotle Crunch Kit is bold and flavorful with a touch of smoky heat and features roasted corn, tortilla strips, cotija cheese, and a chipotle ranch dressing.

This product lineup will be showcased at SEPC's Southern Exposure in Tampa, Florida. Attendees can visit booth #324 to learn more about the ongoing expansion plans and distribution opportunities across the East Coast, Midwest, Southeast, and beyond.
