NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX: TRTC) ("Terra Tech") or (the "Company"), today announced that its subsidiary, Edible Garden, a retail seller of locally grown hydroponic produce, herbs, and floral products, has shipped its first order of nutritionally-enhanced lettuce to ShopRite Supermarkets. The lettuce was developed in partnership with Nutrasorb LLC under the name SUPERLEAF™, in conjunction with Rutgers University, and is the latest addition to Edible Garden's product line of non-GMO fruits and vegetables.
Edible Garden grows and sells two product lines under the SUPERLEAF brand: the Living Salad Mix, a living salad blend high in nutrients, and the fresh cut, ready-to-eat SUPERLEAF Spring Mix. These lettuces are high in vitamins A & C, magnesium, iron and potassium contents. These nutritionally-enhanced, proprietary Green and Red Lettuces were developed by scientists at Rutgers University following years of intensive research and have high levels of fiber and chlorogenic acid. One serving of lettuce contains 2.5x as many antioxidants as blueberries, helping to maintain metabolic health and wellness. These lettuce super blends are grown 100% naturally and are non-GMO Project verified.
Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech, stated, "ShopRite is a leading supermarket in the U. S. with over 300 stores in the Northeast. This order further cements our relationship with ShopRite while demonstrating the value of our product and our growing partnership with Nutrasorb. Through this established customer, our lettuce will be given peak exposure to a broader audience allowing us to gain a sense of its marketing capabilities nationwide. We have always said developing new innovative products to distribute through our existing sales channels is a primary growth driver for Edible Garden and I am pleased we are executing on that strategy. We will continue to provide our customers with the highest quality products and hope the public enjoys our innovative lettuce super blend for everything it has to offer."
