Produce and fish grown in the greenhouse will use BluePlanet’s patented Nano-Bubble Oxygen Infusion Technology. This is the same technology that is used in Pure Rain watering products for the garden and shower.
BluePlanet and ZT Partners are working with both mass and smaller food retailers, and distributors, to select the types of produce and fish to grow to meet the increasing consumer demand for locally grown, sustainable, and chemical-free food.
At the Saratoga Springs location, 80 acres have been set aside to erect greenhouses to meet consumer demands within a 100-200 mile radius.
The Saratoga Springs greenhouses will operate on a year round basis and serve as a working model for further greenhouse developments, as well as a new standard for greenhouse productivity.
The initial deliveries of produce and fish are scheduled for the Spring of 2012.
FORWARD-LOOKING SAFE-HARBOUR STATEMENT
A number of statements contained in this press release are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties, including the timely development, and market acceptance conditions, successful integration of acquisitions and the ability to secure additional sources of financing. The actual results that Blue Planet (9BP) may achieve could differ materially from any forward-looking statements due to such risks and uncertainties.
The company has taken a new initiative for 2010-2011 that will give Blue Planet the recognition and visibility to achieve short and long term growth and profitability. The technology licensing agreements Blue Planet has in place will accelerate the introduction of its retail product technology in a host of new products into the mass retail sector.
In the commercial sector of the company, Blue Planet will become a grower and supplier of fish and produce using its own hydroponic and oxygenation growing systems. Blue Planets first commercial greenhouse will be constructed in September 2011, in upstate New York with its produce available for sale in the spring of 2012.
