Novus International held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of its newest facility, Green Acres Farm, in Montgomery County, Missouri, USA.
Ceremony attendees received lunch and heard from a number of guest speakers, like Thad Simons, president and chief executive at Novus. Following the ribbon cutting, guests were invited to take a self-guided tour of the farm to see Novus' commitment to environmental conservation. Since purchasing Green Acres Farm in 2009, the company made several sustainable improvements, including implementing a wastewater collection system and a solar panel system that is scheduled to be completed in the coming months.
