Terra Tech Corp. (OTC: TRTC) announced that its subsidiary, Edible Garden, a retail seller of locally grown hydroponic produce, herbs, and floral products, has started shipping its line of 4 inch potted living herbs to Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. ("Wegmans") in New Jersey. Wegmans, a privately held American regional supermarket chain headquartered in New York, operates 89 stores in the mid-Atlantic and New England regions.
Edible Garden's living potted herbs are USDA-certified organic, allowing consumers to experience superior-quality, mineral rich produce, free of contaminants, pesticides and GMOs. Living Salads are Edible Garden's answer to bagged salad mixes, which often go limp within a few days of purchase. These "living salads", sold in clamshell packaging, long outlast competitor's products while maintaining maximum flavor, freshness, and nutrient content.
Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech, stated, "We have more than tripled our organic 4 inch herb line production since the second quarter of 2016 due to supermarket demand and are delighted to announce that Wegmans, a nationwide supermarket chain, is one of our latest customers. As a result of the popularity of this product line, we are currently installing more automation table systems in our facility in Belvidere, NJ to increase production of this herb line as well as our SUPERLEAF™ salads. Our Edible Garden subsidiary continues to go from strength to strength as our products gain traction in new locations, including at major supermarket chains such as Wegmans. Our organic produce is becoming more and more popular as consumers become increasingly health conscious and concerned not just with the types of food they eat, but also the production methods used to grow these foods. We are delighted to be shipping to Wegmans in New Jersey so that even more people can experience our freshly farmed produce."
Edible Garden produces local and sustainably grown hydroponic produce, including the following potted living herbs: chives, basil, parsley, oregano, dill, cilantro, mint, rosemary, sage and thyme. In addition to Edible Garden's organic range of lettuces and herbs, the Company also features the following vitamin and supplement brands; Vitamin Way®, Vitamin Whey Protein®, SlimTrim®, Surgex Sports Nutrition®, OmEssentials® and Bikini Ready®.
