Kalera announced its retail store count has grown by 25% this year, with 1,370 retail stores to date and additional retailers expected in the coming months. Kalera is on track to surpass 40 percent growth by year-end.
“Kalera’s strategic priority is profitable pragmatic growth from an International, USA-based national and regional footprint serving strategic partnerships with retailers and foodservice distributors,” said Jim Leighton, Chief Executive Officer of Kalera. “By leveraging our newly created consumer-centric, branded CPG platform, we are tapping into markets that have the potential to significantly increase current volumes, revenue, and farm profitability in 2023.”
In addition, last week Kalera announced that a large national premium grocery retailer added Kalera’s ultra-clean, non-GMO, leafy greens to its Texas market which will be serviced through their Houston Facility”.
Kalera also announced that its Denver farm, the company’s fourth large-scale facility is fully operational, four months ahead of schedule.
“Our Denver farm expands our regional footprint and product portfolio by providing a full range of products, including whole head, loose-leaf and highly accretive microgreens to Denver consumers and foodservice operators,” Leighton said. “We have applied our experience from other farms to accelerate the process, and we are pleased that throughput yield continues to perform above expectations as the facility ramps up to full-scale production.”
