GPDB’s “Living Produce” to Revolutionize Organic Fresh Produce Industry
By Michael Markowski, June 23, 2016
Green Polkadot Box (GPDB) announced on June 20, 2016 that it was awarded a patent on a process to produce living produce. The patent has significantly increased the short-term and long-term value of the company and the price of its shares. It has also reduced the risk of investing in the company.
This patent covers a process that can grow any type of fresh produce, in any weather or U.S. geographical region, 365 days a year. Based on the patent and another patented plant-nutrient product that the company has exclusive rights to, GDPB is positioned to overwhelm the existing organic fresh produce industry. Green Polkadot Box is now positioned to monopolize “living produce”, a new category of fresh produce. Additionally, GPDB is going to cause serious disruption to the global organic produce production supply chain.
GPDB will dominate the fresh organic produce category. Its 365 days per year controlled environment growing system enables it to:
- Supply organic produce grown in all U.S. regions to the entire population of organic produce consumers in the U.S. Presently, 85% of all fresh produce consumed by U.S. consumers is grown outside of the U.S. Consumers in the U.S. consider produce grown outside of the U.S. to be inferior.
- The quality of the organic produce grown by GDPB in its controlled environment is superior to existing organic produce grown anywhere else, because soil is not a component of the process, and it is impossible for “flying” pesticides to enter into the company’s controlled environment.
In addition to the company having a patent on the process to produce live produce the company also obtained a registered trademark for its Living Produce® brand. The trademark covering the new Living Produce® premium fresh-produce category is as significant as having the patent to produce living produce. Having the foresight to obtain a trademark on this new product category is beyond brilliant— as “Living Produce®” will soon become a household name. The two words “living” and “produce” ideally define the new category
Living Produce® will replace organic produce as the premium fresh produce product category in the U.S. The nutritional value of fresh produce diminishes steadily from when it is picked to the time it is consumed. Upon consumers becoming educated about the quality of fresh produce diminishing they will demand living produce, primarily because GPDB can provide living organic produce at the same prices as so-called “fresh” organic produce.
The Living Produce® products will be shipped “live” by GPDB directly to consumers, restaurants, and purveyors of organic foods. Because the produce remains live for seven days after it is shipped the nutritional quality of the produce will be at its peak when consumed.
The company has a huge advantage in getting the word out about the new premium fresh produce category it has created — Living Produce®. Consumers have already been well educated regarding the benefits of organic produce and are already paying a premium for it. There is no question that the consumer will embrace Living Produce® very quickly, and demand it. I predict that the demand for living produce will spread virally via social media.
The company is equipped to capitalize from the new living produce product category it has created. GPDB has a distribution facility that has shipped $12 million of 2,500 organic and non-GMO (non- genetically modified organisms) products and frozen foods to more than 10,000 on-line consumers since inception.
The company has acquired 40-acres of land in Sanpete County, Utah to develop a Living Produce® growing center. It intends to expand the benefits of its organic and non-GMO products’ buying collective not only by giving customers the ability to purchase organic living produce that is superior to organically grown produce, but also at wholesale prices. Similar to GPDB’s packaged food business segment, the company intends to use its leverage to broaden its provisioning of high-quality living produce at a discounted price to consumers. In anticipation of the Living Produce® launch, GPDB developed an innovative system for shipping packaged goods and freshly harvested Living Produce® together, in a specially packed box.
When I discovered and recommended Green Polkadot Box shares in May of 2016, I was completely unaware of living produce being a product, or a category. I was also completely unaware that the company had obtained a trademark covering Living Produce®, and that GPDB had filed a patent on a process to produce living produce.
My original rationale for recommending Green Polkadot Box shortly after I discovered it was twofold: it was a digital disruptor with the potential to disrupt the $593 billion U.S. grocery industry and its chain of suppliers; and, GPDB’s share price and market cap had fallen, absurdly, to a five-year low that was equivalent to a fraction of its five-year high.
GPDB’s obtaining the new living produce patent during June 2016, has positioned the company to dominate online retailing of organic and non-GMO products. Any would-be competitor (including Amazon) would have difficulties competing because without GPDB they would not be able to offer living produce products.
Additionally, because of the new patent the company has added the titles of “first mover” and “disruptor” to its defining attributes, which also includes GPDB’s previously identified “digital disruptor” title. With the Living Produce® trademark it has become a first mover in the U.S. organic produce retail segment. GPDB will seriously disrupt the global produce production segment and supply chain of the organic produce industry. There is no doubt that Green Polkadot Box is going to shake up the entire global organic produce industry.
GPDB’s defining attributes:
- Digital disruptor to the U.S. grocery industry because it takes on-line orders and ships products directly to consumer, and also cuts out all middlemen. (Disrupts retailers, e.g., Whole Foods, and food distributors.)
- First Mover in the fresh produce industry. (Living produce will replace organic produce as the premium category.)
- Disruptor of the global organic produce production industry. (Will put organic farmers out of business.)
Based on this new development Trophy Investing’s suggested buy limit price to purchase shares of GPDB will be raised in the near future. Because the share prices of micro-cap and penny stock companies can be volatile — a result of the market for shares of such companies being illiquid — Trophy Investing provides an initial suggested buy limit price upon its recommending shares of any company. Based on changes to the company’s fundamentals, the buy limit share price is raised or lowered by Trophy Investing.

Trophy Investing was founded in May 2016 by Michael Markowski, who Fortune Magazine named as one of its 50 Great Investors, to capitalize on the divergence in the markets caused by the passage of the Dodd Frank Act. From his research Michael concluded that those companies defined as micro-caps, and which have share prices trading below $10, were most recently at their lowest relative valuations since he entered the capital markets in 1977. The 6 minute video below entitled “Green Polka Dot Box named 1 of best 100 penny stocks to own” explains why the prices of the shares of GPDB and other small companies are absurdly low.
The video below entitled, “Why companies qualifying as a ‘First Mover’ have the potential to get to $1 billion valuations almost instantly”, is recommended because it unequivocally now pertains to GPDB.
The video below entitled, “Digital disruptor companies have the potential to get $10 billion valuations quickly” also pertains to GPDB. The video explains what Uber did, and what other startup digital disruptors must do to become successful:
