Apr 17, 2018McCain invests in vertical farming company
McCain Foods has completed a strategic investment in TruLeaf Sustainable Agriculture, a Canadian agricultural technology company that has developed proprietary indoor vertical farming technology to grow leafy greens year round.
Since its inception in 2011, TruLeaf has been developing these systems, that it said can be located anywhere, from the heart of an urban center to remote communities with harsh climates. TruLeaf currently sells its produce in Atlantic Canada under the GoodLeaf brand, in retail and food service channels.
“We believe this partnership will accelerate TruLeaf’s farm build-out, providing high quality, local, fresh produce to more Canadians while also expanding our reach to other countries around the world,” said Gregg Curwin, TruLeaf founder and CEO.
