Our indoor Vertical Farm facilities operate on a 24/7/365 basis and are immune to weather fluctuations. They represent a revolution in productivity – our facilities can produce the equivalent of 750 harvests per annum per m2 of land used, compared to 5-6 harvests for field-grown crops.
Our facilities are highly automated, requiring little in the way of manual intervention and providing full-time jobs; so, we are insulated from any labour shortages resulting from our proposed exit from the EU. Collectively, this assures our partners of a reliable, year-round supply of produce from a single source.
Additionally, our facilities can be built on flat land of any quality, ensuring that all our crops are locally sourced. This minimises food miles and extends the shelf life of our produce. The bio-secure nature of our facilities also means that our crops don’t need to be washed – further extending sell-by dates by as much as a week and thereby reducing food waste.
