Belvidere, New Jersey-based Edible Garden AG Inc. has appointed Deborah K. Pawlowski to its board of directors, effective Oct. 14.

Pawlowski has also been appointed to the audit, compensation and nominating and governance committees of the board and has been appointed as chair of the compensation committee.

“We are pleased to welcome Deborah Pawlowski to the Edible Garden Board. Deborah brings more than 30 years of experience as a proven, entrepreneurial business leader with a track record in corporate communications, capital markets and business strategy,” said Jim Kras, CEO.

“This experience will be invaluable to the company as we continue to grow our footprint, add new distribution partners, and expand our communications strategy. Importantly, we are gaining traction among both retailers and customers due to our focus on sustainability and our ‘Zero-Waste Inspired’ approach. As we enter our next phase of growth, we believe her appointment further illustrates our commitment to the highest levels of corporate governance.”

Pawlowski has experience in investor relations, capital markets, marketing, strategic planning, leadership coaching and management. For more than 20 years, she has served as the founder, chairman and CEO of KEI Advisors, an investor relations and business advisory firm. She has also held senior executive positions, leading the investor relations programs at National Fuel Gas Company and American Precision Industries.

“I am honored to join the board of Edible Garden at this exciting time in the company’s development…recent events have highlighted the fragility of the food supply chain and by growing produce closer to the retailer and end consumer, Edible Garden is not only reducing the carbon footprint, but also providing both consumers and retailers with fresher and locally grown products,” Pawlowski said.

“They are also leveraging advanced technologies to enhance efficiency and reduce costs. Moreover, with the recent launch of the Edible Garden Heartland facility, the company is well positioned to expand its footprint within the Midwest. I look forward to leveraging my experience within both the corporate environment and capital markets to help maximize value for shareholders.”

Edible Garden operates its own greenhouses and processing facilities in Belvidere, New Jersey, and Grand Rapids, Michigan, and has a network of contract growers, all strategically located near major markets in the U.S. Its proprietary GreenThumb software optimizes growing in vertical and traditional greenhouses while seeking to reduce pollution-generating food miles. Edible Garden is also a developer of ingredients and proteins, providing a line of plant and whey protein powders under the Vitamin Way and Vitamin Whey brands.
