Edible Garden expands produce distribution in US

Published 07 April 2014

Terra Tech Corp (TRTC) subsidiary Edible Garden, an urban agricultural company, is pleased to announce that their line of sustainable and locally-grown produce is now available at Marsh Supermarkets throughout the Midwest.

Headquartered in Indianapolis, Marsh operates 63 Marsh Supermarkets and 3 O'Malia's Food Markets in Indiana and Ohio and services approximately 2 million customers per week. Heartland Growers out of Indiana will be cultivating and shipping both the 4" potted line as well as hydroponic butter head lettuce.

"This is our first major retail partner in the Midwest market and is a great anchor for Edible Garden," says Derek Peterson, CEO Terra Tech Corp. "Marsh is a premium retailer in the area and they are extremely focused on providing locally grown options for their customers."

Heartland utilizes an eco-conscious approach to cultivation. Heartland recycles water, utilizes no harmful pesticides, and repurposes methane gas collected from a local landfill to heat their facility. They cultivate using energy and labor efficient Dutch-style equipment to maximize output while minimizing costs. With over 30-acres of greenhouse Heartland has the ability to scale as orders increase.

The company shipped their first order last week and will continue to fill stores throughout the weeks ahead. Edible Garden is actively pursuing additional retail partners to fill out their new 5-acre facility as well as their cultivation partners in Florida and the Midwest. In addition the company has been experimenting with new produce in an effort to broaden their offerings to both current and potential retail partners.
