Mr. Jim Kras, Chief Executive Officer of Edible Garden, commented, “Receiving this patent is a testament to our innovative capabilities. It also provides protection for our proprietary Self-Watering Display, which has already shown its value in extending shelf life, ensuring maximum freshness, and significantly reducing spoilage at retail locations. By integrating this state-of-the-art technology, retailers can confidently present their plants in optimal freshness, leading to reduced shrink and ultimately, a better product for consumers.”
