Toronto Venture Exchange Trading Symbol: VEG.H

CALGARY, June 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Captiva Verde Industries Ltd. ("Captiva" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company is in the process of negotiating and acquiring land leases totaling over 1,100 land acres in two regions within Southern California and one region within Arizona.

Our first 25-acre field in Tehachapi was planted in early May 2014 yielding an early June 2014 harvest of approximately 151,000 net pounds of organic leafy greens.

The 12 Month Farming Plan, to be approved by management shortly, calls for another planting of the same 25-acre field this week plus an additional 70 acres with an expected harvest in early-mid July. As additional acres are brought into production, the Farming Plan calls for monthly harvests ranging from 1.2 million pounds in August 2014 and fluctuating each month up to 2.8 million pounds in March 2015 for a 12 month total of approximately 20 million lbs. Each land acre yield 3 crops per season and the diversity of the regions allows for harvest throughout the year.
