About Us

Located in Leduc, AB, Trusted Freshness® is growing nutritious, fresh, safe and truly local salad greens and herbs for the Edmonton area. We strive to provide the highest level of quality control to offer peace of mind for those looking for a fresh to market alternative available year round.


Our commercial-scale vertical farming enterprise makes use of energy-efficient lighting technology (LED) that has been designed to create specific light requirements for each of the plants we grow. Our proprietary lighting enables us to control the size, shape, colour, flavour and nutrition of our crops.

By using hydroponics and closed loop irrigation systems, our plants use 95 per cent less water than open-field farming, enabling us to recycle the nutrients our plants need for their growth.


Food safety receives the highest priority of our contract growers, and in every phase of handling and distributing produce to our customers.

Our facilities comply with Canada Gap®, Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point). Our ongoing goal is to deliver unsurpassed quality assurance and quality oversight from the beginning of the growing cycle to the delivery of produce to our customers.
