BELVIDERE, N.J. — Food safety in produce is a national security issue that exposes millions of consumers to contaminated produce. Edible Garden®, an agriculture-technology company that operates environmentally controlled greenhouses, introduces its best-in-class GreenThumb™ AgTech Solutions patent-pending software as a solution to traceability in the produce category.
“Our years of experience have provided our team with the tools to develop an outstanding traceability service with GreenThumb. It enables us to tighten the food chain as we continue to optimize food safety measures and fulfill our customers needs,” said Jim Kras, CEO of Edible Garden.
Edible Garden’s GreenThumb is proprietary automated software heralded by the brand and its retail partners as the produce supply chain solution. The company’s state-of-the-art farming practices ensure product quality that meets stringent food safety standards. Edible Garden’s GreenThumb program is the answer to fulfilling orders and provides a safe alternative to field grown produce.
Edible Garden recently launched an equity crowdfunding campaign via crowd investment platform Republic, which will help fund the commercialization of the company’s advanced environmentally controlled greenhouses. More about the campaign which runs through January 2021 is here:
