"We are excited about the growth we have experienced this year. This has always been a year of foundation building for an impactful 2014 however we are pleased at the financial advancements we have made year to date," explains Derek Peterson, CEO Terra Tech Corp. "We have made solid progress with expanding our brand and are thrilled that our products are now available at BJ's Wholesale. We are maximizing our current space and are working diligently to complete the 5-acre build to accommodate additional retail expansion."
The company anticipates finishing the construction of their new 5-acre build by year-end 2013. The facility will be brought online in stages throughout the 2014-year in an effort to balance operating expenses with production demand. In addition to the expansion and development of the Edible Garden brand of locally grown produce Terra Tech is actively pursuing multiple opportunities in the medical cannabis arena. Their GrowOp Tech subsidiary has formed an advisory team focused on evaluating both the risks and opportunities in the space. They are focusing on cultivation opportunities, hemp production, CBD oil extractions as well as the procurement of state issued permits in existing and developing states. The company will release more specific information as they continue to develop these channels.
