Description of the Business

Local Bounti Corporation ("Local Bounti" or the "Company") was founded in August 2018 and is headquartered in Hamilton, Montana. The Company is a producer of sustainably grown living lettuce, herbs, and loose leaf lettuce. The Company's vision is to deliver the freshest locally grown produce over the fewest food miles possible. The Company is a CEA company that utilizes patent pending Stack & Flow TechnologyTM, which is a hybrid of vertical and hydroponic greenhouse farming, to grow healthy food sustainably and affordably. Through the Company's CEA process, it is the Company's goal to produce its products in an environmentally sustainable manner that will increase harvest efficiency, limit water usage, and reduce the carbon footprint of the production and distribution process. The environmental greenhouse conditions help to ensure nutritional value and taste, and the Company's products are non-GMO and use significantly less pesticides and herbicides than traditional farming operations. The Company's sustainable growing methods use 90% less land and 90% less water than conventional farming methods. With a mission to 'bring our farm to your kitchen in the fewest food miles possible,' Local Bounti’s food is fresher, more nutritious, and lasts 3 to 5 times longer than traditional agriculture.

On April 4, 2022, the Company acquired California-based complementary indoor farming company Hollandia Produce Group, Inc. (the "Pete's Acquisition"), which operates under the name Pete’s® ("Pete's"). Pete’s is a California-based indoor farming company with three greenhouse growing facilities, including two operating facilities in California and one in Georgia. The Georgia facility commenced commercial operations in July 2022. Pete’s has distribution to approximately 10,000 retail locations across 35 U.S. states and Canadian provinces, primarily through direct relationships with blue-chip retail customers, including Albertsons, Kroger, Target, Walmart, Whole Foods, and AmazonFresh. Pete’s primary products include living butter lettuce – where it is a leading provider with an approximate 80 percent share of the CEA market within the Western U.S. – as well as packaged salad and cress. See Note 3, Acquisitions, for additional discussion of the Pete's Acquisition.
