Speaker: Ian Mott
Founder of Super Micro Greens
Ian Mott is the founder of Super Micro Greens Co. He is an Indianapolis native. Super Micro Greens is a local urban farm located downtown in the Stutz Building. The company is set up to harvest micro greens daily year around.
A microgreen is a young vegetable green that is used both as a visual and flavor component or ingredient primarily in fine dining restaurants. Fine dining chefs use microgreens to enhance the attractiveness and taste of their dishes with their delicate textures and distinctive flavors. Smaller than “baby greens,” and harvested later than sprouts, microgreens can provide a variety of leaf flavors, such as sweet and spicy. They are also known for their various colors and textures. Research has found that microgreens may potentially have higher levels of nutrients than mature vegetables.
Super micro greens are produced with a BioPonic process focused on the highest levels of nutrients and micronutrients. Varieties include arugula, kale, kohlrabi, cabbage, mustard, broccoli and many more.
