BrightFarms Ready for Big Expansion

BrightFarms, a leader in the indoor leafy greens category, is poised for a massive expansion that includes opening three new high-tech greenhouse complexes in Illinois, Georgia, and Texas this year.

With the new facilities, the company is building the largest greenhouse salad supply chain in the U.S., delivering partners a secure supply of fresher, high-quality indoor-grown greens that are the category’s growth driver.

“2024 is going to be a breakout year for BrightFarms,” stated Abby Prior, Chief Commercial Officer of BrightFarms. “Our new greenhouses will provide the capacity we need to fill the increased demand of our retailers and consumers for fresher leafy greens. With more supply to fill the shelf, the growth that has gotten the category to where it is today is only the beginning.”
