Revol Greens, a US producer of greenhouse lettuce, is planning to establish a new growing operation in Temple, Texas.
Pending approval from Bell County Commissioners Court, Revol Greens plans to construct a 40-acre greenhouse as part of a more than $110 million investment, representing two phases of what will ultimately be a four-phase expansion.
Revol Greens intends to break ground on the new operation later this year, with plans to be operational in 2022.
The Minnesota-based company uses advanced cultivation methods and greenhouse technology to grow its produce. Currently, Revol’s greens are available in stores and restaurants across the Midwest and the Temple operation will mark the company’s first southern expansion.
The facility will be financed by Equilibrium Capital, which has also invested in companies such as AppHarvest as part of its controlled environment foods strategy.
“Revol Greens selected Temple for our new facility in order to expand our production and distribution capabilities,” said Mike Wainscott, CFO of Revol Greens.
“The Temple greenhouse will produce upwards of 17 million pounds of greens annually upon completion of phase two. Temple’s central location in Texas means our products will reach shelves and tables throughout the southern US efficiently.”
