Kalera’s newest facility in Atlanta begins operations

Orlando-based vertical farming company Kalera today announced that it has completed construction of its newest facility in Atlanta, Georgia on-time and on-budget. Its largest farm to date, the facility is 77 thousand square-feet and has the capacity to produce over 10 million heads of lettuce per year. Located in Forest Park, GA, the project was completed in just eleven months thanks in large part to the company’s modular building approach.

Planting has already begun and first harvest is expected in April, with a gradual production ramp-up over the course of 2021. In Q2 2021, Atlanta-area customers, which include foodservice and retail leaders across the region, will begin receiving delivery of Kalera’s locally grown clean, safe, nutritious, price-stable, long-lasting greens. 

Kalera plans to open five additional large-scale facilities across the US by early 2022, including locations in Houston, Denver, Hawaii, Columbus, and Seattle. Kalera also recently acquired Vindara.
