IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - August 22, 2017) - Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX: TRTC) ("Terra Tech" or the "Company") today announced that its subsidiary, Edible Garden, a nationwide provider of fresh, locally-grown herbs and leafy greens, continues to expand its product range with the launch of a new line of fresh-cut herbs, under the name 'Snip Its™', for individuals seeking out healthier salad alternatives that are free of genetically modified organisms.
This new line of products is to be retailed at a major national grocery chain that supports health and wellness, and serves more than 40 million customers each month. Geared towards convenience for cooking while adding nutrients to every dish, the premium cut herb line is Non-GMO Project Verified and GFSI Certified. The new product line complements Edible Garden's existing range of locally-grown, 100% natural produce, which includes living potted herbs and the nutritionally-enhanced, organic SUPERLEAF™ lettuce, which has 5X more antioxidants than ordinary lettuce. Edible Garden produce is currently available at more than 1,800 retail outlets nationwide including several national chains; this latest product line will facilitate access to new distribution channels, such as this partnership with a major national grocery chain.
"We launched the new line of fresh-cut herbs to meet the growing consumer demand for fresh, nutritious, non-GMO salad products," commented Mr. Derek Peterson, Chief Executive Officer of Terra Tech Corp. "Keeping with our tradition of locally and sustainably grown herbs and produce, the fresh-cut herbs are grown using absolutely zero harmful pesticides. According to the Illinois based research firm Nielsen, sales of food labeled 'non-GMO' grew more than $8 billion from 2012 to 2016, reaching nearly $21.1 billion in total sales. We will continue to expand our product range within this category as we grow the Edible Garden brand, which is known for its natural, fresh and good quality produce."
