Kalera opens new facility in Denver

Colorado residents will soon be able to shop local for lettuce and microgreens from Kalera, thanks to the opening of the company’s new Denver farm. The nearly 90,000-square-foot facility, located at 18000 E 40th Avenue, in Aurora, Colorado is the company’s fifth domestic farm, joining a U.S. footprint that includes farms in Atlanta and Houston as well as two in Orlando. The first harvest is scheduled for May.

“Increasing our national and global footprint has been a priority for our team as we seek to serve our major retail and food service customers,” said Curtis McWilliams, Kalera’s interim chief executive officer. “Opening this facility is an exciting step towards this goal, and we’re proud to serve urban communities like Denver with clean, nutrition-dense leafy greens that are accessible to local consumers.”

“Innovation is our focus, it’s what Kalera was founded on,” said McWilliams. “We are thrilled with these results, but not surprised, and are eager to bring this same efficient performance to our Denver farm.”

“Our partnership with Agrico will enable Kalera to fund the development of more farms worldwide,” said McWilliams. “We anticipate continued rapid growth in 2022 and are looking forward to providing food security to more urban communities.”
