Indoor growers partner to expand spinach distribution

Indoor leafy greens grower BrightFarms is teaming up with Element Farms in New Jersey to set a new standard for indoor-grown produce in the Northeast. Both trailblazers in sustainable, controlled environment agriculture (CEA), this mutually beneficial partnership allows BrightFarms to distribute Element Farms’ indoor-grown spinach throughout the Northeast under the BrightFarms brand, further satisfying the strong consumer demand for high-quality, locally grown spinach.

“This partnership with Element Farms is an important step forward for BrightFarms. We will continue to be leaders in CEA salads, delivering the assortment our retail partners and consumers demand,” says Steve Campione, CFO and Executive Vice President of Strategy at BrightFarms. “BrightFarms has been the leader in indoor spinach production since we launched the product in retail stores in 2016.
