We build and manage Vertical Farms based on
circular economy to transform food systems.

The challenges
we face.

By 2050, we’ll need to feed 10 billion people using the same resources we currently have. Extensive agricultural practices and climate change have resulted in an alarming decline in biodiversity — and with dwindling supplies of arable land and clean water, food production is at risk. To ensure a sustainable future, we must rethink and reform our food systems.

Today's agriculture for almost 8 billion people:

40% of all ice-free land

70% of all freshwater

30% of all GHG emissions

by growing
more with less

Vertical Farming produces high-quality locally grown produce at a lower cost and with far fewer resources than traditional agriculture. Additionally, it reduces food miles & food waste by growing crops in cities, eliminating carbon emissions associated with transportation and importation. Grow local, think global!

local matters

Reducing food miles, waste & energy consumption

20km*

Less miles, less waste, less pollution
Bringing agricultural production closer to home shortens the supply chain and drastically cuts food mileage and waste.

*Distance from Niederhasli to Zurich City

2000km*

In addition to long-distance transportation, a substantial amount of energy is needed for cooling during transit and storage.

*Distance from Almeria, Spain to Zurich, Switzerland.

ENERGY WASTE

During traditional farming transit, high energy is needed for food cooling.

FOOD LOSS - UP TO 30%

During long-distance transportation more than 30% of food is lost.

GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN RISK

Covid revealed the vulnerability of global food chains & their risk in regard to food security.
