Vancouver, BC – good natured Products Inc. (TSX-V:GDNP) (the “Company” or “good naturedTM”) is pleased to announce its latest commercial partnership with Indoor City Farm, Your Local Greens, Inc.
Utilizing the latest LED grow light technology from Phillips Horticulture, Your Local Greens plans to become a key player in the post-organic Indoor City Farming space. With only 3% waste, 90% less water usage than traditional farming methods, and guaranteed, consistent production volumes, Indoor City Farming is rapidly gaining popularity within the global hydroponics market that’s poised to grow to about $13.7 billion by 2025.
Your Local Greens has completed the first phase of what will be a total of four sealed grow rooms in a 60,000 square foot warehouse producing a large variety of products from flavor-full microgreens to multiple types of leafy greens.
Partnering with good natured® allows Your Local Greens to move outside the grow-room to include the use of non-petroleum, plant-based products. “We were instantly drawn to good natured® innovative plant-based packaging as it contains none of the potentially harmful additives commonly found in petroleum-based plastic packaging and is made from renewable resources,” said John Battle, President of Your Local Greens.
Paul Antoniadis, CEO of good natured® added: “We’re very excited to be working with Your Local Greens who, like us, have set a course to become leaders in their field. With one of the largest assortments of plant-based herb and microgreen packages in North America, we’re well positioned to serve innovative American growers like Your Local Greens who wish to extend the promise of fresh and healthy all the way through to their packaging.”
All good natured® packaging is made with the highest possible percentage of annually renewable materials and up to 35% recycled content. Containing no BPAs, phthalates or other chemicals of concern, Your Local Greens is assured that the fresh healthy food they work so hard to produce will stay that way all the way to their customers’ tables.
