CORONA, Calif.- Grow Pod Solutions (OTC: GWPD), a leading agtech company and developer of clean, automated micro-farms, announced that its new modular indoor agricultural systems can grow herbs and vegetables without contamination frequently associated with other farming methods. This is especially important given the recent recalls of lettuce due to E.coli contamination.
GrowPod uses the highest grade materials in its systems. The modular, stackable pods feature proprietary technology to monitor every detail of plant growth, including light intensity, nutrient delivery, and oxygen levels.
"We are leading the drive to provide consumers with 'Super Foods' that are clean and healthy," said George Natzic, President of Grow Pod Solutions. "Our exclusive high-grade clean agricultural system eliminates harmful pathogens, and grows food with farm-to-table freshness and 100% traceability."
The GrowPod agricultural system uses sterile water and purified air in a sealed and filtered environment, thus eliminating the sources of contamination. The company's patented bipolar air ionization reduces airborne pollutants by delivering charged oxygen molecules that neutralize chemical compounds and sterilize pathogens, mold and bacteria, to create the optimum environment for growing.
According to the CDC, romaine lettuce grown in traditional outdoor farms has been linked to a deadly outbreak of E.coli. The government website states, "If you do not know where your romaine lettuce was harvested, do not eat it and throw it away."
Produce grown in a GrowPod clean agricultural system gives consumers confidence that their food is safe.
Grow Pod Solutions also announced that the company is shortening its name to GP Solutions in conjunction with its move from a privately held to a publicly traded company. GP Solutions is traded on the OTC markets under the ticker symbol: GWPD.
