Local Bounti Plans Pasco, Washington, Indoor Agricultural Operations

Local Bounti Corporation, an indoor agriculture company, plans to establish operations in Pasco, Washington. The project is expected to create 40 jobs.

The new controlled environment agriculture facility, located on three acres, will directly service local retail distribution centers within the Pacific Northwest region and provide additional capacity to meet existing demand from the company's direct relationships with blue-chip retail customers.

"We are proud to officially be able to call Pasco home with the opening of this latest facility, which enhances our rapidly growing distribution footprint across the US,” said Craig Hurlbert, Local Bounti's CEO. “Our state-of-the-art CEA facility, which is underpinned by our innovative and patented Stack & Flow Technology, enables us to support existing customer demand in Washington, Oregon, and adjacent markets in the Pacific Northwest. We are excited about the opportunities this facility creates, not only for our Company but also for the local economy and the environment. Our pledge to sustainability and community engagement remains unwavering, and we look forward to contributing positively to Pasco and the broader Pacific Northwest region.”

Local Bounti's patented Stack & Flow Technology combined the advantages of vertical and greenhouse cultivation. The company grows fresh, non-GMO greens 365 days a year in our greenhouses, using 90% less water and 90% less land than conventional agriculture. Local Bounti currently operates advanced indoor growing facilities across the U.S., servicing approximately 13,000 retail doors.

"Pasco extends a warm welcome to Local Bounti in our community and the Tri-Cities region. Their dedication to integrating into the community, creating jobs, and prioritizing sustainable practices represents a substantial investment in Pasco's future," noted Jacob Gonzalez, Director Community & Economic Development for the City of Pasco. "We are eager to collaborate with Local Bounti as they contribute to our city's growth and diversity of economic opportunities."
