(OTCQX: TRTC) ("Terra Tech" or the "Company"), a vertically integrated cannabis-focused agriculture company, today announced that Terra Tech subsidiary, Edible Garden, will participate in the New York Produce Show and Conference December 7th. Edible Garden will showcase its organic SUPERLEAF™ product along with organic herbs at the one-day industry trade show of over 400 companies that includes local retailers, wholesalers, foodservice distributors, urban farms and unique eateries. This is the only produce show in New York City and is the 2nd largest produce trade show in North America. The attendee make-up for this event is over 40% buyers with over 5,000 produce executives from around the world visiting the 400 exhibitors for 1-on-1 meetings.
Edible Garden will have an exhibit booth at the show displaying both new and existing products including its SUPERLEAF™ product and organic herbs. Following the Produce Show, Edible Garden will be rolling out its Living SUPERLEAF™ Spring Mix and Cut SUPERLEAF™ Spring Mix to existing Northeast supermarket customers.
Derek Peterson, Chairman and CEO of Terra Tech commented, "The New York Produce Show and Conference offers Edible Garden a prime opportunity to display and market the beneficial and nutritional properties of our organic SUPERLEAF™ lettuce to such a prospective audience. Our non-GMO verified SUPERLEAF™ lettuce continues to be a popular item for customers looking for enhanced nutritional benefits as one serving of this lettuce contains more than twice the amount of antioxidants as blueberries. The rollout of SUPERLEAF™ to existing customers in the Northeast will only expand our footprint as we aim to gain market share for Edible Garden and drive shareholder value."
