Catalyst-backed BrightFarms opened a 280,000 square feet indoor farm in Selinsgrove, Penn. on what once were soybean fields. It is the latest and largest from BrightFarms, a nationwide hydroponic greenhouse operation that aims to eliminate the long-distance trucking many greens require by growing them locally year-round.
Catalyst portfolio company BrightFarms, a leader in locally grown packaged salads, has been featured in Forbes as a safer brand of salad.
Paul Lightfoot, President at BrighFarms, explained to Forbes contributor Liz Engel that BrightFarms is “structurally better than the product we compete with, and consumers are really going for it.”
