Revol Greens, a greenhouse based in Minnesota, announced in a press release the completion of its greenhouse expansion, quadrupling its year-round growing capacity. Expanding from two to 10 acres, Revol Greens is now one of the largest greenhouses in the United States dedicated to baby leaf lettuce. With this enlarged capacity, Revol Greens plans to launch additional products over the coming months.

“At the core of our newly expanded greenhouse is a highly-automated growing and harvesting environment, designed to keep our customers safe while eliminating supply chain constraints for our retail and foodservice customer,” says Mark Schulze, CEO of Revol Greens. “We’re grateful we’re able to provide even more fresh, nutritious and versatile greens to our local Midwest community, as many people are eating at home during this time.”

Highlights of the expanded greenhouse include:

●     Four times current production, expanding total volume to over 4 million pounds annually

●     Growing new varieties of greens and expanding current product lines

●     Broader market reach, expanding distribution footprint

●     10 million gallons of rain and snowmelt captured and UV sterilized from the expanded greenhouse roof

●     Saving over 500 truckloads and 1 million food miles from the West Coast annually

●     Eliminate food waste by delivering five days fresher than product shipped from the West Coast
