Central Market + Growtainers® = Store Grown Produce

CEA Advisors & Growtainers® is pleased to announce the launch of the STORE GROWN initiative with major US Food Retailer, Central Market, Dallas Texas.

After more than a year of meetings with the Produce Marketing team at Central Market, the first custom built for onsite production FOOD SAFETY COMPLIANT Growtainer® has been delivered and is turning out FRESH leafy greens, herbs and spices for Central Market customers in Dallas. “We spent over a year discussing their concerns and objectives and when I was sure we were all on the same page we began the design and manufacturing process” said Glenn Behrman, founder of Greentech Agro LLC and CEA Advisors LLC.

STORE GROWN production in the Growtainer® to produce the freshest, unique, gourmet leafy greens and herbs for Central Market customers at the retail level is their objective. Central Market and CEA Advisors worked closely with Chris Higgins and Tyler Baras of Hort Americas to train the Central Market associates to operate a food safety compliant, climate controlled, LED lit multi-layer vertical indoor production environment. 

“CEA Advisors is proud to be working with the Produce Team at Central Market, all committed to innovation and focused on food safety, unique products and the customer experience” said Behrman. North America’s leading horticultural supplier of goods and services, Hort Americas provides their expert and ongoing consultation to the project, as well.

The state of the art 53’ custom built Growtainer® has a separate utility area and provides 480 square feet of climate controlled vertical production space, specially designed for maximum efficiency and food safety compliance. Besides having a dedicated proprietary technology for ebb and flow irrigation installed and a state of the art water monitoring system, the Growracks® are also equipped with energy efficient LED production modules, specifically designed for multilayer cultivation.
