"Since 1996, Windset has expanded exponentially to produce and market over 2,500 acres of CEA facilities in Canada, United States and Mexico," said President and CEO Steven Newell. "Windset Farms will be the only greenhouse producer and marketer growing year-round from British Columbia, California and Mexico. As the largest vertically integrated CEA greenhouse vegetable supplier in western North America, this lit expansion will further enhance our reputation for unmatched fulfillment with locally grown, high quality, ultra fresh produce to our retail partners, in Canada, the United States and Asia."
With exclusive seed rights, an extensive award-winning product portfolio and robust brand recognition, Windset Farms has experienced significant growth. Windset’s strategic proximity to the market makes its produce accessible to over 125 million consumers within a 24-hour drive of Windset's production and distribution facilities, serving the entire western North American market — and beyond.
Year-round production of greenhouse-grown products from three growing regions reduces carbon emissions by limiting the need for long distance transportation. This sustainable lit production ensures a steady produce supply, irrespective of seasonal fluctuations. Furthermore, it generates new employment opportunities for the local community.
In conjunction with this expansion, Windset Farms has been preparing some exciting product launches for the IFPA Global Produce and Floral Show in Anaheim, CA, complemented by a newly redesigned booth (No 659). The show provides a spectacular platform to showcase the company's phenomenal growth and rebranded product line.
