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 is a controlled environment agriculture ("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, its goal is to produce environmentally sustainable products in a 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.

On April 4, 2022, the Company acquired California-based complementary indoor farming company Hollandia Produce Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the "Pete's Acquisition"), which operate under the name Pete’s ("Pete's"). Pete’s is a California-based indoor farming company with three greenhouse growing facilities, including two in California and one in Georgia. The Georgia facility became operational 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 as well as packaged salad and cress. See Note 3, Acquisitions, for additional discussion of the Pete's Acquisition.
