WGCIT Startups Tour GreenGate Fresh in Salinas

More than 10 tech startups from the Western Growers Center for Innovation and Technology toured GreenGate Fresh in Salinas, Calif. to learn first-hand about how processing plants work and what technology the facility already uses.

GreenGate Fresh is lead by Robert K. Barkley, Travis Pendleton, Jay Iverson and Keith Bazabal, who have more than 100 years of combined experience in the agriculture industry. It is this depth of experience that makes them a vital contact for WGCIT innovators.

To help our members do more with less, the WGCIT was created to help identify industry priorities, discover technologies to address those priorities, set up testing, facilitate industry feedback and communicate progress to California, Arizona and Colorado fresh produce farmers.
