In New York, Gotham Greens, a leading urban greenhouse developer and grower of locally and sustainably grown produce, received another $29 million to continue the growth. The company owns and operates 4 production-scale facilities in NYC and Chicago totaling 170,000 square feet and has another 500,000 square feet under development in 5 states.
“This funding enables us to continue on our path of rapid growth that is providing consumers with fresher, better tasting, locally grown produce while transforming urban real estate and promoting sustainable agriculture,” said Viraj Puri, co-founder and CEO.
Gotham Greens has grown from a single urban rooftop greenhouse in Brooklyn to a multi-state indoor farming leader and one of the largest hydroponic leafy greens producers in North America. Gotham Greens grows fresh produce in technologically advanced, climate-controlled urban greenhouses in close proximity to retailers and food service providers. This ensures year-round supply chain reliability, transparency, and traceability.
