Did you know that there are some foods that are so rich in nutrients, so beneficial to your health, and so rich in flavor that they’re referred to as “super foods”? Well, there are. And kale is on that list. Kale is a leafy green vegetable similar to cabbage or collard greens.
With continued growth of sales and to continue our investment into the latest in process technology, we will be adding three new production lines at our Illinois facility. The final phases of both the overall design and selection of the best-suited processing equipment are being completed.
