Pure Green Farms Gets To Work On Expansion Plans With New Investor


Last updated on June 13th, 2024 at 12:23 pm

Pure Green Farms, a Midwest hydroponic greenhouse which had its official launch earlier this year, will be moving forward with its expansion plans after taking on a new investor, Paul J. Mastronardi.

Mastronardi chose to invest in Pure Green Farms because of the technology of the greenhouse and its growing system that produces high quality leafy greens.

Mastronardi’s advisory board includes former COO of Loblaws, Grant Froese; former president/COO of CVS, Charles Conaway; as well as current CEO of Perennial Brands, Jakob Ripshtein. 

“It’s no secret that the landscape of food supply chains is changing at a dramatic pace,” Mastronardi said. “We think this new greenhouse model using sustainable growing methods to produce fresh lettuce locally will withstand the test of time and prove to be better from an environmental, efficiency, quality and safety perspective.”

The investor partnership elevates the company with a team that has a deep understanding of the supply chain process. Mastronardi has experience with building a vertically integrated business and plans to further solidify the Pure Green Farms operation. He has seen immense success in the tomato greenhouse category and plans to bring that expertise to the greenhouse lettuce business.

“We have seen a demand in the supply chain for local produce,” Mastronardi said. “At Pure Green Farms, we have 100 percent control from seed to plate and we believe this to be our key advantage.”

The investment also speaks to the farm’s commitment to continue to provide the best local, sustainably grown and pesticide free leafy greens on the market. The opportunity for a stronger retailer strategy will be brought forward with Mastronardi’s insights. 

“We’re proud of the product we have and want to share our greens with a wider base of customers,” said Joe McGuire, CEO of Pure Green Farms. “We appreciate Paul J. Mastronardi’s investment and partnership to be able to help us reach that goal. I very much look forward to seeing what the future holds for the greenhouse.”
