Irvine, Aug. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terra Tech Corp (TRTC), an urban agricultural company, is pleased to announce the filing of its Second Quarter 2013, financial results for the quarter ending June 30, 2013. The full 10Q filing is available on the SEC's website http://edgar.sec.gov/.
Total revenues generated from sales of the Company's products for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 totaled $665,365, an increase of $582,180 from the quarter ended June 30, 2012, which totaled $83,185. The growth in the second quarter is primarily attributable to the acquisition of Edible Garden, a premier brand of local and sustainably grown hydroponic produce.
"We are excited about our growth particularly because we didn't close the acquisition and begin to realize the revenue until we were well into the quarter," explains Derek Peterson, CEO Terra Tech Corp. "In addition we will begin to realize revenue from Palm Creek Produce in Florida by late Q3 or early Q4 2013 and we anticipate our new 5-acre facility to be finished by year end. We are looking forward to 2014 when we should be able to realize revenue from multiple projects."
Edible Garden is a premier brand of local and sustainably grown hydroponic produce, sold at major grocery stores such as Shoprite, Food Emporium and others throughout New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.
Palm Creek Produce, a hydroponic greenhouse grower of specialty plants, is cultivating living basil under the Edible Garden brand for sale throughout the Florida market. Palm Creek's 1.25-acre facility is capable of producing up to 10,000 units of living basil per week.
Furthermore, the company is making significant progress on the construction of their new 5-acre facility in Belvidere, NJ. Pictures of the build can be viewed on their Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/ediblefarms. The company plans on releasing a corporate update later in the week to inform shareholders on multiple aspects of the companies operations.
