THE CHEF’S GARDEN EXPANDS USE OF SOLLUM TECHNOLOGIES’ SOLUTION

DYNAMIC LED GROW LIGHTS TO SUPPORT NEW RESEARCH

Montréal, Québec, Canada, March 2, 2022  On the heels of successful initial studies playing with dynamic spectra, The Chef's Garden, located in Ohio, has substantially expanded their research operations under Sollum's dynamic LED grow light solution.


CEO Bob Jones Jr. and the rest of the team at The Chef's Garden know better than anyone the power of merging natural solutions with innovative ones. "Our goal at The Chef's Garden has always been to provide fresh produce that looks good, tastes good, is good for you and is grown cleanly with sustainable methods" says Jones. "Both our restaurant and home delivery partners demand high quality and the solution that Sollum Technologies has provided for us in our growing system helps us in attaining all of these attributes."

The expansion is a giant leap forward made possible thanks to the success of earlier studies using Sollum's smart LED lighting solution. "The Chef's Garden has been growing quickly and exploring new and exciting avenues for their business" says Marco Lafond, vice-president, Client Operations at Sollum. "Growing alongside these endeavors are their research aspirations for which our lights play a major role. We could not be more pleased to be a part of the Chef's Garden's journey, which aligns with our vision to revolutionize horticultural lighting."
