Belvidere, July 30, Jul 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) — Terra Tech Corp (TRTC) subsidiary Edible Garden, an urban agricultural company, announced new retail outlets for their line of living produce. The company is now shipping 4″ Living Herbs to Kroger grocery stores throughout Indiana and Cincinnati. Edible Garden’s cultivation partner Heartland Growers will be cultivating, packing and shipping the produce. Edible Garden selected Heartland due to their 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.
“We are excited to add Kroger to the list of retailers now carrying the Edible Garden brand,” says Derek Peterson, CEO Terra Tech Corp. “It’s refreshing to see large companies like Kroger supporting local farmers and the creation of local jobs.”
Edible Garden is actively pursuing additional retail partners to fill out their new 5-acre facility as well as the facilities of 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.
