Ms. Pawlowski further noted, “I am honored to join the Board of Edible Garden at this exciting time in the Company’s development. Edible Garden is rapidly emerging as a leader in the controlled environment agriculture sector, with a commitment to sustainability and consumer health. Recent events have highlighted the fragility of the food supply chain and by growing produce closer to the retailer and end consumer, Edible Garden is not only reducing the carbon footprint, but also providing both consumers and retailers with fresher and locally grown products. They are also leveraging advanced technologies to enhance efficiency and reduce costs. Moreover, with the recent launch of the Edible Garden Heartland facility, the Company is well positioned to expand its footprint within the Midwest. I look forward to leveraging my experience within both the corporate environment and capital markets to help maximize value for shareholders.”
