Long Island Consumers Set to Enjoy Greater Access to the Company’s Fresh, Sustainably Grown Produce
Broadened Presence Presents Opportunity to Boost Third-Quarter Revenue
BELVIDERE, NJ, June 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edible Garden AG Incorporated (“Edible Garden” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: EDBL, EDBLW), a leader in controlled environment agriculture (CEA), locally grown, organic and sustainable produce and products, today announced an expansion of its distribution partnership with King Kullen and IGA across all of their retail locations on Long Island, New York.
Mr. Jim Kras, Chief Executive Officer of Edible Garden, commented, "We are pleased to broaden our distribution at both King Kullen and IGA retail locations across Long Island, New York, in time for the 2023 summer season. In response to growing consumer demand for the fresh produce and herbs that Edible Garden has built its reputation on, both King Kullen and IGA have doubled the shelf space that they have allocated in their retail locations for Edible Garden products. Historically, during the summer season, we see consumers taking vacations with many in the NY metropolitan area heading out to the eastern end of Long Island, an area well-renowned for its coastline and beaches. Many of these vacationers are year-round Edible Garden consumers, however in the past it has been difficult for them to find the fresh, sustainably grown produce that they are used to purchasing during the rest of the year. By increasing the shelf space allocated to Edible Garden produce and products, both King Kullen and IGA are providing a solution to meet the growing consumer demand.”
“We are delighted to step up and supply King Kullen and IGA retail locations on Long Island with all the produce they need to meet their customer demands. Moreover, this expansion of our distribution offers us an opportunity to increase third-quarter revenue, which is traditionally the lightest quarter of the year for Edible Garden. We are well aware of the seriousness with which consumers approach their summer barbecues and are proud to contribute, as the 'Flavor Maker', to making the summer season of 2023 the tastiest yet, not just on Long Island, but throughout the entire Edible Garden distribution network.”
