80 Acres Farms, an industry-leading vertical farming company, is announcing its first foray into grab-and-go fresh meals.
“Busy consumers are looking for convenience,” said Leah Vanwoerkom, VP of Marketing & Brand. “They’re also more dialed into health and wellness than ever before—reading nutrition labels and seeking out clean, wholesome products made without fillers or artificial preservatives. The right product didn’t exist in the ready-to-eat salad category, so we decided to create it.”
The company is launching three curated kits:
- Feelin’ Gouda, with red and green leaf lettuces, gouda cheese, apple chips, dried cherries, sea salt pecans, and a poppy seed vinaigrette
- Greekin’ Out, with red and green leaf lettuces, feta cheese, marinated artichokes, pickled beets, garlic croutons, and a Mediterranean-inspired dressing
- Rockin’ Ranchero, with crispy leaf lettuce, white cheddar cheese, black beans, crunchy corn, pickled onions, and a smoky chipotle dressing
“We’ve put a lot of time and work into making sure that everything in these kits is as fresh, healthy, and clean as our pesticide-free greens,” says 80 Acres Farms CEO and co-founder Mike Zelkind. “We’re elevating the convenience and grab-and-go experience by providing the highest quality ingredients at the right price for our growing national consumer base.”
