US (TX): Vertical farms poised to change fresh produce supply chain

Robinson Fresh, a nationwide provider of fresh produce and supply chain services, is the distributor of Eden Green’s produce. As part of its offerings, Eden Green is supplying romaine and butterhead lettuce under the Robinson Fresh brand to some of the largest retailers in the U.S.

“We’re able to do greenhouse farming very efficiently and also able to provide it very affordably to the average consumer,” Badrina said. “From a distribution standpoint, an aspect of our affordability is the fact that we can place our greenhouses right next to distribution centers, virtually eliminating the supply chain costs.”

Eden Green Technology currently has two vertical greenhouses totaling more than 100,000 square feet of grow space. The company is also in the process of building two additional facilities to double its capacity by the end of the year.

Eden Green Technology is not the only CEA company making big moves in the Lone Star State. In May, Revol Greens opened what company officials said is the world’s single-largest CEA lettuce facility ever built. The facility is located in Temple, Texas, about 70 miles north of Austin.
