Vancouver, Washington-based indoor farm, Forward Greens, has a new 11-product lineup of microgreens, salad greens and baby greens available in Safeway and Albertsons stores across Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Salad greens, a combination of baby greens and microgreens, is a new addition to Forward Greens. All of the new products are a mix of texture, flavor and color, delivered from the local farm to market for peak freshness.
“We’re excited to expand our selection of greens as more consumers fall in love with their flavor and texture, in addition to their many health benefits,” said Ken Kaneko, Forward Greens founder and CEO. “Introducing Forward Greens to a larger market like Safeway has been a goal of ours, as we want more people to have access to our greens in stores that are conveniently located close to where they live.”
New Forward Greens blends include those like Kraveable Kale Blend (baby kale and red mustard microgreens), Fantastic Frill Blend (baby red and green frilled leaves, red mustard, mizuna and kale microgreens) and Micro Kale (kale microgreens).
“Life happens around food, and Safeway Albertsons is thrilled to partner with Forward Greens to offer one more way our customers can experience healthy, local and convenient food,” said James Molamphy, produce sales manager for the Portland Division of Safeway Albertsons.

With 11 products now available, each is grown on-site at Forward Greens from non-GMO seeds. As a good source of vitamins and nutrients, they may be eaten on their own or as part of a favorite recipe.
