BrightFarms salads to appear in Walmart

BrightFarms’ locally-grown packaged salads will soon be sold at select Walmart stores in stores in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Grown in BrightFarms’ Wilmington, Ohio greenhouse, the packaged salads will be available to Walmart shoppers starting this October. The 120,000 square-foot commercial greenhouse opened earlier this year and is BrightFarms’ fourth across the country.

“The heart of our mission is to provide more of the population with access to fresh, delicious and nutrient-rich local produce,” said Paul Lightfoot, CEO of BrightFarms. “By partnering with Walmart, the largest retailer in the world, we’re able to provide a wider portion of consumers with year-round local produce that was grown by farmers in their own community.”

In addition to its Ohio location, BrightFarms operates greenhouses in Rochelle, Il.; Culpeper, Va., and Bucks County, Pa. to provide supermarkets with a consistent supply of locally grown produce. Around the country, BrightFarms’ salad greens are sold in leading retailers such as Kroger, Ahold-Delhaize and Albertsons.
