BELVIDERE, NJ, Aug. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Edible Garden AG Incorporated (“Edible Garden” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: EDBL, EDBLW), a leader in controlled environment agriculture (CEA), locally grown, organic, and sustainable produce, was recently recognized by OpenDeal Portal LLC, dba Republic, an SEC-registered crowdfunding portal, following the Company’s recent initial public offering (“IPO”).
“We’d like to congratulate Edible Garden on their recent IPO and listing on the Nasdaq,” commented Chuck Pettid, CEO of Republic. “The team’s dedication to sustainability and zero waste is admirable, and we wish them continued success as a public company as they further expand their business opportunities and enhance their brand.”
Jim Kras, Chief Executive Officer of Edible Garden, commented, “I would like to express my deep gratitude to Republic and all the investors that participated in our crowdfunding, which was instrumental helping us reach our operational goals, culminating in our recent IPO on Nasdaq. I would also like to thank Maxim Group and Joseph Gunnar & Co., who acted as lead book-running manager and joint book-running manager, respectively, as well as Harter Seacrest & Emery LLP and Loeb & Loeb LLP, who provided legal counsel in connection with the IPO. The capital raised through both Republic’s platform and the subsequent IPO has helped us further accelerate our capabilities, technology, and retail distribution, which has contributed to our growing brand awareness and increasing sales. As a result, we believe we are well-funded to deliver our Zero-Waste Inspired® approach to provide consumers with what they are looking for — locally grown and sustainably sourced packaged herbs, vegetables, and lettuce, utilizing our proprietary packaging technologies to keep produce fresher for longer. We remain excited about the outlook for the business and remain 100% committed to our mission of ‘doing more with less’ to support our environmental goals, while helping address global food supply challenges.”
