GoodLeaf’s 45,000 square-foot Guelph, Ontario, facility is now fully functional.
The indoor vertical farm was opened in 2019, and after a few months of trials and COVID-19 pandemic-related delays, the facility is Safe Quality Food-certified and will be growing baby leaf products and microgreens year-round.
GoodLeaf has been selling four microgreen stock-keeping units commercially about a year, according to a news release, and with full production, retail partners include Loblaws, Longo’s Sobeys and Whole Foods. Foodservice customers will also be added.
The company recently released Ontario Arugula and Ontario Baby Kale into the market.
According to the company, producing in Canada makes the product immune from delays or longer wait times at the border such as those caused by the pandemic.
GoodLeaf has four microgreens and two baby greens available in Ontario:
- Spicy Mustard Medley
- Pea Shoots
- Micro Asian Blend
- Micro Arugula
- Baby Kale
- Baby Arugula
