Put simply, the products we grow, pack & ship are truly unique.
Everything we do is quite literally still "living" with the roots connected for freshness. Without going overboard on the whole living lasts longer speech, we'd just ask you to at least acknowledge the fact that what we do is 100% rooted in providing every customer the freshest herbs + microgreens.
While being original is important to us, listening to customer feedback is critical to any future success we hope to achieve. That is why we are quite pleased that this latest packaging innovation – developed exclusively for our clamshell line of fresh herbs, checks both of those boxes.
For context, North Shore Living® Herbs + Greens are grown in an organic growing medium, similar to peat moss, which keeps the roots contained. Since the late 90’s, we have spent years fine tuning our proprietary hydroponic greenhouse systems to achieve the 3x longer shelf life than cut herbs differentiation.
As the company behind The Original Living Herbs, we find satisfaction in recreating a better wheel. That is why this year at PMA Fresh Summit we are excited to introduce our Mini Greenhouse™ clamshell packaging line with new Root Lock™ Technology.
