US-based producer of fresh fruits and vegetables, Taylor Farms, has made an investment in Pure Green farms, which grows, packs and ships leafy greens year-round from its hydroponic farm in Indiana.
The expansion will enable Taylor Farms to make its foray into the greenhouse growing sector and complement Taylor’s existing 122,200 crop acre field-grown programme and 16 salad producing facilities across North America.
“We’re excited to venture into the industry of indoor growing with this investment,” said Bruce Taylor, founder and CEO, Taylor Farms. “Our customer partners have asked for a national solution and this is our first step.”
Pure Green Farms’ facility is a climate-controlled environment equipped with high-tech machinery, which has the potential to be expanded by up to 300 acres.
“We are thrilled to work alongside an industry leading company like Taylor Farms,” said Joe McGuire, CEO of Pure Green Farms. “We know this is just the beginning of a fantastic relationship with Taylor Farms and we’re looking forward to continuing to address the increasing demand for local product offerings.”
