VertiFresh, LLC has announced its partnership with Denver-based MAD Greens Inspired Eats to begin offering a signature "Alferd Packer" summertime salad made with all locally grown ingredients – including VertiFresh hydroponic lettuce. MAD Greens' customers will be among the first in Denver to sample the company's lettuce, grown using the patent pending PharmPlex hydroponic cultivation system produced by FusionPharm, Inc., also based in Denver.

"Together MAD Greens and VertiFresh are doing our part to make a positive impact on Denver's environment and economy," said William Sears, founder of VertiFresh. "We know customers are committed to products that are good for them and good for the environment, and as two local companies, all our food dollars stay in the community."

Hydroponics is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions in water, without soil. Using the patent pending Pharmplex indoor cultivation system, which utilizes repurposed steel shipping containers to cultivate plants indoors, VertiFresh can grow premium quality produce close to local restaurants and markets.
