Why vertical farming?

By 2050 we will have a world population of 9bn*, and food production must increase by 70% to meet this demand**. Vertical farming could be one answer to this global issue.

Through our work with vertical farms we've found that a combination of our technology, green energy and custom tariffs can help significantly reduce energy costs for this high growth sector.
