IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/19/17 -- Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX: TRTC) ("Terra Tech" or the "Company"), announced today its subsidiary, Edible Garden® will exhibit its complete range of fresh, locally grown herbs and leafy greens, including its proprietary SUPERLEAF™ lettuce, at the Fresh Summit Expo, booth 4623, in New Orleans, Louisiana on Friday, October 20 and Saturday, October 21, 2017. The Fresh Summit Exposition, hosted by the Produce Marketing Association ("PMA"), brings together 19,500 attendees from 60+ countries and 1,000 exhibitors, to discuss trends, form valuable contacts and fuel new and profitable opportunities.
Terra Tech's Edible Garden subsidiary is implementing a strategic plan to grow market share by expanding its offering of Non-GMO, sustainably-grown herbs and salads, in conjunction with an enhanced marketing campaign. At the Fresh Summit Expo, Edible Garden will showcase its recently launched line of fresh-cut 'Snip Its™' herbs as well as its nutritionally-enhanced SUPERLEAF lettuce, among other herbs and produce. Edible Garden's new line of fresh-cut Snip Its herbs are Non-GMO Project Verified and GFSI Certified and geared toward individuals seeking out convenient, healthier salad alternatives that are free of genetically modified organisms. The SUPERLEAF lettuce was developed in partnership with Nutrasorb LLC, in conjunction with Rutgers University after years of intensive research, and is high in vitamins A & C, magnesium, iron and potassium, as well as fiber and chlorogenic acid. One serving of lettuce contains 2.5x as many antioxidants as blueberries and 5X more antioxidants than ordinary lettuce, helping to maintain metabolic health and wellness. These lettuce super blends are grown 100% naturally and are non-GMO Project verified.
Ken VandeVrede, Chief Operating Officer of Terra Tech Corp., commented, "Edible Garden has long prided itself on using the safest standards and most energy efficient technologies available to produce high quality, healthy produce. Its range of fresh herbs and leafy greens, which are locally-grown using sustainable farming practices, have made it a popular choice for health conscious and environmentally aware consumers across the United States. As consumers become increasingly cognizant of the merits of organic and sustainably-farmed production methods, we are witnessing a growing demand for our natural plant products, which include our 'living' herbs and our nutritionally enhanced SUPERLEAF lettuce, among others. We have therefore implemented several initiatives to expand our offering, including the launch of our 'Snip Its' herbs this year, and increased distribution of SUPERLEAF. These initiatives are supported by a focused marketing campaign that includes participation at industry events, such as The Fresh Summit Expo, where I look forward to connecting with potential customers and raising awareness of the Edible Garden brand."
