July 17, 2023 – Fieldless, a Canadian vertical farm, unveiled new packaging used for the first time in the leafy greens category as a solution to reduce single-use plastics.

“We’re proud to be the first to package cut greens this way,” said Fieldless CEO Jon Lomow, in a press release. “Our goal is to significantly reduce single-use plastics while maintaining a great product experience.”

The press release notes that if plastic manufacturing were a country, it would be the 5th largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world. And biodegradable or “compostable” plastic options for single use can be even worse than traditional plastic.


“Food producers continue to rely on plastic since consumers want to see the produce they are buying. That’s perpetuating a reliance on single-use plastics in grocery retail,” said Lomow.
