Companies that Care Day (March 18th) isn’t widely celebrated, but we believe that it should be! We’re putting Companies that Care Day on the map to recognize Sodexo, Everlane, and others we work closely with. By farming with the Leafy Green Machine, these companies are making important strides to improve the physical and mental health of their employees, customers, and surrounding communities.
Just over a year after the Leafy Green Machine™ first launched in Europe, we're seeing widespread success for our Freight Farmers in a variety of markets. From Norway to Cyprus, these diverse Freight Farmers have two things in common: a passion for growing and an abundance of leafy greens for sale!

One of our guests in the latest webinar was Dave from the Client Services (CS) team. We chatted with him in the hopes to get to know him, his role, and how he helps our customers succeed on a day-to-day basis.

Dave is a great resource: With the help of farmhand® data, he can work with you to troubleshoot and resolve any issues you might have in your container farm.
