Edible Garden's offering now includes the following brands : VitaminWay®, Vitamin Whey Protein®, SlimTrim®, Surgex Sports Nutrition®, OmEssentials® and Bikini Ready ®. These brands have an industry leading reputation for quality, which is built on strict adherence to exacting standard of control and regulatory compliance with the FDA's GMPs and NCAA regulations. These vitamins and dietary supplements are already sold in over 5,000 major food, drug, mass and specialty stores across the U.S.
"This is an exciting opportunity for us to leverage our strong reputation for producing fresh, organic fruits and vegetables in order to expand our customer base and penetrate new areas of the healthy living industry," commented Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech. "As we already have the necessary infrastructure needed to seamlessly take over the manufacturing process, we expect to rapidly benefit from marketing these lines of nutritional products and supplements. Our subsidiary, Edible Garden, will begin to use nutrients, such as the newly developed "SuperLeaf," extracted from plants grown at its New Jersey farm in the products. Entering the vitamin and supplement market also opens up an expanded retail distribution network, which has the potential to bring further potential benefits to our existing business. We continue to expand Edible Garden's portfolio of healthier, more nutritious products, which are produced to the safest standards and using the most energy efficient technologies available."
