‘Indolce’ Basil Now in Thousands of Mid-Atlantic Retailers
ROCKINGHAM, Va., May 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Soli Organic Inc.’s brand-new line of USDA certified organic ‘Indolce’ basil is landing on produce aisle shelves in over 2,000 select stores across more than 15 Mid-Atlantic distribution centers with leading grocery partners including Ahold Giant Stores, Lidl, Walmart, Publix, Whole Foods, Tops Markets, Lowes Foods, Southeastern Grocers/Winn Dixie, Mom’s Organic, Target, and Giant Eagle. Soli Organic (“the Company”), formerly known as Shenandoah Growers, Inc., is the nation’s only soil-based, controlled environment agriculture company delivering 100% USDA certified organic produce to more than 20,000 retail stores nationwide.
Soli Organic’s proprietary soil-based, organic, indoor production system enables the Company to unlock the full value of controlled environment agriculture (CEA), including considerable cost savings and the ability to grow without the use of artificial substrates or expensive synthetic fertilizers, like most of its hydroponic competitors. As a result, ‘Indolce’ basil will be available at nearly a dollar less per ounce on average than field-grown organic produce – for a superior quality product, demonstrating for the first time the true potential of CEA technology.
