BELVIDERE, NJ, March 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edible Garden AG Incorporated (“Edible Garden” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: EDBL, EDBLW), a leader in controlled environment agriculture (CEA), locally grown, organic and sustainable produce and products, today announced at the Natural Products EXPO WEST® 2023 that Whole Foods Market locations in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast will carry Edible Garden’s new line of Pulp sustainable gourmet sauces and chili-based products beginning in the summer of 2023.
Mr. Jim Kras, Chief Executive Officer of Edible Garden, commented, "We are excited to commence the launch of the Pulp line of products in Whole Foods Market retail locations across their Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern divisions. Expanding into a new product category is a significant milestone for Edible Garden as it moves us into what we believe will be higher-margin products with longer shelf life. In addition, it will provide the brand with added visibility as the product will be located in the refrigerated section, which is adjacent to our products carried in the produce section. The addition of Whole Foods Market as a retail distribution partner represents a further expansion of an already robust distribution network across the country. We look forward to working closely with Whole Foods Market as we seek to further expand our Zero-Waste Inspired® brand, both geographically and into new product categories.”
