Kalera celebrates its first harvest of lettuce and microgreens at its new, Aurora, Colorado-based farm located at 18000 E 40th Avenue. Kalera produce will be available in 200 King Soopers stores located throughout the Denver metropolitan area.
"We are excited about the early performance of Kalera's 'Mile High' vertical farm and offering the Colorado market clean, nutritious, and locally-grown greens," said Curtis McWilliams, interim CEO of Kalera. "We look forward to extending our footprint beyond the inner mountain west and are eager to see the positive changes the farm will bring to the region's agricultural and economic environment."
"Colorado residents share key values with Kalera, sustainability, and nutrition being at the forefront, making our Denver farm an ideal addition to the region," said McWilliams. "We are eager to see our lettuce and microgreen varieties on shelves and look forward to the relationships we will create with local businesses."
