Windset Farms® Announces Delta, British Columbia, Expansion; Steven and John Newell Comment

CANADA & SANTA MARIA, CA - Year-round availability has become essential to the success of the produce department. Windset Farms® has made a move to strengthen its own operations, announcing its latest expansion that brings year-round lit greenhouse production at scale in Delta, British Columbia, for Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. The project will be completed by spring 2024.

Steven Newell, President and Chief Executive Officer, Windset Farms®"Since 1996, Windset has expanded exponentially to produce and market over 2,500 acres of CEA facilities in Canada, United States, and Mexico," President and Chief Executive Officer Steven Newell states. "Windset Farms will be the only greenhouse producer and marketer growing year-round from British Columbia, California, and Mexico. As the largest vertically integrated CEA greenhouse vegetable supplier in Western North America, this lit expansion will further enhance our reputation for unmatched fulfillment with locally grown, high-quality, ultra-fresh produce to our retail partners, in Canada, the United States, and Asia."

According to a press release, Windset Farms’ Santa Maria, California, greenhouse facility is currently one of the largest operating single-site greenhouse vegetable facilities in the United States.

John Newell, Chief Operating Officer, Windset Farms®“In 2024, our Delta greenhouse facility will become the largest operating lit greenhouse vegetable facility in Western North America, utilizing renewable hydroelectric power,” says John Newell, Chief Operating Officer. “Windset has always delivered sustainably produced, top-tier greenhouse vegetables, which will now be available year-round across all production sites.”

Windset’s strategic proximity to the market makes its products accessible to over 125 million consumers within a 24-hour drive of its production and distribution facilities, serving the entire Western North American market and beyond. Year-round production of greenhouse-grown products from three growing regions also reduces carbon emissions by limiting the need for long-distance transportation. Furthermore, it generates new employment opportunities for the local community.

Windset has also been preparing some exciting product launches for the Global Produce & Floral Show later this week. Be sure to visit Windset Farms at booth #659.
