Belvidere, April 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terra Tech Corp (TRTC) subsidiary Edible Garden, an urban agricultural company, is pleased to announce they are expanding their line of naturally grown living produce to multiple Walmart distribution centers. Last year the company was given a trial run through one Walmart distribution center in the Northeast, which serviced approximately 75 stores. Recently Edible Garden was informed Walmart would be adding the Edible Garden line to 4 additional distribution centers located throughout the Northeast as well as the Midwest. Each distribution center services approximately 75 retail stores. The company received the opportunity to service additional markets because they consistently delivered high quality, fresh produce since they began servicing Walmart last June.
"This is a major accomplishment for our brand and a huge vote of confidence in our abilities to service additional distribution centers throughout the country," says Derek Peterson, CEO Terra Tech Corp. "We are pleased that retailers like Walmart are supporting local farmers, helping create local jobs, and investing in their local communities. "
The company anticipates the first orders will be shipped to the new distribution centers by late May. The company recently achieved organic certification and is in the process of developing additional products to market through both new and existing sales channels.
"We have been working diligently to service our relationship with Walmart and we are excited about our growing relationship with them. Just like any consumer they have lower cost options from outside the country but they have chosen to invest in a small company like ours and in the communities in which we operate. Our goal is to continue to service as many of their stores throughout the country as we can," expressed Ken Vande Vrede, COO of Terra Tech.
Edible Garden is actively pursuing additional retail partners to fill out their new 5-acre facility as well as the facilities of their cultivation partners in Florida and the Midwest. In addition the company has been experimenting with new produce in an effort to broaden their offerings to both current and potential retail partners.
