Today we use more than 40 percent of all liveable land to produce food, that’s even more than we use for housing!
To prevent negative environmental consequences such as deforestation, water pollution and soil erosion we need to come up with new ways of producing food for the global population. We believe indoor vertical farming is one part of that solution. By being 100x more efficient, more people could be fed using less land, and instead we can free outdoor space to tackle eutrophication and improve biodiversity.
Another important aspect is that, by growing food locally, 365 days per year, we avoid large chunks of food transport and reduce the largest contributor to co2 emissions for leafy green production (keeping greens refrigerated) from 7-10 days to 1-2 days(since we produce closer).
