Company Summary

Organic demand out pace supply and while 50% of lettuce is grown in California using more water and requiring more energy for transport and storage, consumers prefer "local" twice as much over "organic." With FTC's indoor farming platform, packaged salads can be produced within 100 miles of their target markets using less water and energy over all. This creates an unprecedented brand position: "local AND organic, sustainable AND affordable."
