Sept. 7, 2023 – Pure Flavor has acquired MightyVine, a midwest CEA tomato grower and brand in Rochelle, IL, just west of Chicago.
MightyVine’s 30-acre facility with lit production provides greenhouse-grown tomatoes year-round to Chicago and its surrounding regions.
“Expanding our capacity with lit crop production enables us to service the midwest with USA grown tomatoes, this further complements our Southeast programs from our Peach County, GA facility,” said president Jamie Moracci in a press release.
Pure Flavor has acquired a number of farms in the last year. They acquired DeTemporada Farms in late December 2022 and then Cervini Farms C5 in February 2023. Pure Flavor then expanded its network in July by acquiring another distribution center in McAllen, TX. Expansion is already underway at DeTemporada’s Phase II of 13 acres that will be completed later this year, as well as development plans for Phases VI & VII as part of Pure Flavor’s master 350-acre campus plan in Leamington, Ont.
