Garden Lites has announced that it will relocate the manufacturing facility from Jamaica, New York to Avenel, New Jersey. Garden Lites makes veggie-rich products that help consumers get more veggies into their diet. In fact, vegetables are the primary ingredient in all of their items. They are also made with only clean/simple ingredients, Gluten Free, non-GMO certified, nut free and kosher. This has led to an expanded product line and true game changer of innovation in the frozen food category. Currently, the booming plant-based food and beverage market has grown to over $4.9 billion in U.S. sales, and Garden Lites sales spiked over the past 2 years, growing over 100 percent.
At the end of 2017, the company moved to their new state of the art 40,000 square foot plant to Avenel, NJ where it will manufacture their broad variety of products, including: Garden Lites Muffins, Garden Lites Super Food Veggie Cakes, Garden Lites Superfood Mac and Cheese, and many other items. The corporate offices will move to Rahway, New Jersey to house the executive team, marketing, sales, customer service and accounting.
Garden Lites products can be found nationwide, including distribution in Costco, Kroger, Meijer, Target, Shop Rite, Publix, Stop & Shop, Giant, HEB, Ralph’s, Fry’s, Whole Foods, and many more retailers. The line also has the prestigious Good Housekeeping Nutrition Seal of Approval, which is the first health-conscious, lifestyle-aware seal in the food and beverage industry.
“The company move to our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility allows us to meet the significant growth in demand, while also giving us improved innovation capabilities”, says Andrew Reichgut, executive vice president of Garden Lites. “Consumers are wild about gluten-free and natural choices, and with the added benefits of vegetables as the first and primary ingredient, Garden Lites answers the call of American consumers for nutritious and delicious food,” adds Andrew Reichgut.
