Revol Greens Rolls Out New Plant-Based Nutrient Source and Organic Greenhouse Lettuce Line
- by Chandler James
OWATONNA, MI - I have a sneaking suspicion that Revol Greens got its name from the word “revolutionary,” since the company continues to break barriers in the greenhouse sector. It recently launched a new proprietary plant-based organic nutrient source that marks the next step in a nationwide organic greenhouse program. The newly developed Plant Fed™ organic fertilizer is behind Revol’s newest line extension, which includes USDA Certified Organic Spring Mix, Green & Red Duo, and Romaine Crunch.
“The path to organic is a natural evolution for Revol Greens,” says Mark Schulze, CEO. “Our high technology facilities are designed to optimize Mother Nature while eliminating the need for pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides. The plant-based, natural fertilizer developed by our research and development team is an extension of our goal to provide the healthiest, most natural leafy greens to our customers. We’re proud of this significant innovation for our industry and our ability to expand more of our healthy leafy green products made from our Grown Clean and Green process to American tables.”
Considering the risks of food-borne illnesses associated with animal byproducts, Revol landed on the patent pending new Plant Fed organic solution to further enhance the safety and integrity of its packaged lettuce. As with all Revol Greens products, the new plant powered nutrient source and organic line are non-GMO.
No chemical cleaning or chlorine is used in Revol’s organic packaging process, according to a press release. From seed to packaging, no human hands touch Revol Greens’ baby lettuces or greens, which further mitigates the spread of contaminants.
“This new organic nutrient source means that our lettuce is fed by plants. We’ve devoted years of research and testing to perfect this solution,” said Marc Vergeldt, Director of Research and Development. “We are the first grower, indoor or outdoor, to use such a source at scale.”
Consumer interest in plant-based foods is at an all-time high, which further inspired the choice for Revol Greens to pursue an organic nutrient source. Recent U.S. retail sales data shows plant-based foods have outpaced total food sales during the pandemic, up 90 percent year-over-year, as noted in the press release.
