BrightFarms Named One of Fastest Growing Companies in US

BrightFarms is included in the 36th annual Inc. 500, ranking #235 among America’s fastest growing private companies.

The Inc. 500 is a comprehensive list of high growth private companies across the United States.

“I am pleased for my colleagues to enjoy being recognized among the top 500 fastest growing companies in the United States,” said Paul Lightfoot, CEO of BrightFarms. “Our long-term growth is driven by the success of our model to satisfy the rising demand for local produce in the nation’s leading food retailers. We’re thankful to our partners, particularly Giant Food (Ahold), Mariano’s (Kroger), Acme (Albertsons) and McCaffrey’s, for their commitment to bringing consumers fresher, local produce.”

BrightFarms is ranked 10th among all food companies on the Inc. 500 and is the only produce company to be included in the list.

BrightFarms operates three commercial greenhouse farms across the country — Rochelle, Illinois.; Culpeper, Virginia; and Bucks County, Pennsylvania; will soon break ground on its Clinton County, Ohio greenhouse and with plans to open another 10-15 greenhouses in the next three to four years.
