80 Acres Farms announces grab-and-go meals

80 Acres Farms is entering into grab-and-go fresh meals. Starting this month, consumers will be able to find the company's ready-to-eat salad kits at more than 200 locations in Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

"Busy consumers are looking for convenience," said Leah Vanwoerkom, VP of Marketing & Brand. "They're also more dialed into health and wellness than ever before-reading nutrition labels and seeking out clean, wholesome products made without fillers or artificial preservatives. The right product didn't exist in the ready-to-eat salad category, so we decided to create it."

The company is launching three curated kits:

"We've put a lot of time and work into making sure that everything in these kits is as fresh, healthy, and clean as our pesticide-free greens," says 80 Acres Farms CEO and co-founder Mike Zelkind. "We're elevating the convenience and grab-and-go experience by providing the highest quality ingredients at the right price for our growing national consumer base."

Right now, consumers can find the company's salad kits at Heinen's Grocery Store in Chicago and Cleveland, Dorothy Lane Market in Dayton, Jungle Jim's International Market and Pipkin's Market in Cincinnati, the Turnip Truck in Nashville, and Cincinnati- and Columbus-area Kroger stores. In the coming weeks, the kits will be on shelves at the Heine Brothers Coffee shops in Louisville, the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, and other locations across the Midwest and the Mid-South.

This news comes as 80 Acres Farms prepares to officially open its latest facility, a 200,000-square-foot farm in Boone County, Kentucky, capable of producing 40 million servings of produce per year. The company also operates several production farms in southwestern Ohio and research and development facilities in Arkansas, North Carolina, and the Netherlands and is building another 200,000-square-foot farm in Covington, Georgia, outside Atlanta.
