80 Acres Farms Announces New Grab-and-Go Meals

Today, 80 Acres Farms, an Ohio-based vertical farming company, is announcing two new additions to its line of clean, pesticide-free premium salad kits -- Hail, Caesar! and Zing N' Zen. The kits launched at approximately 200 Kroger stores in Cincinnati and Columbus earlier this month. This summer, they will join the company's other grab-and-go meals at retail locations across the eastern United States.

Hail, Caesar! is the 80 Acres Farms version of a consumer favorite, with romaine lettuce, shaved parmesan cheese, herbed croutons, and Mother Raw® brand roasted garlic Caesar dressing, plus chickpeas and hearts of palm for added flavor and protein. Zing N' Zen, the company's first vegan salad kit, is a punchy blend of crisp green lettuce, cashews, sesame sticks, gingered carrots, and marinated cabbage, with Mother Raw® brand sesame ginger dressing.

"Since we introduced salad kits last year, retailers have been expanding the category, because consumers are looking for healthy, portable, on-the-go options that fit their busy lifestyles," says Grant Rice, the company's Vice President of Sales. "With a cleaned-up Caesar and a vegan option, we are responding to that demand and reaching more people."

The company released its first three grab-and-go meals in September 2023. Supported by a tremendous consumer response to product benefits, including pesticide-free lettuce and ingredients with "no artificial anything," they have quickly expanded to more than 1,000 retail locations. Last week, the company announced that it had purchased the Mother Raw® premium salad dressing brand, which will increase efficiency and support product development and store expansion.
