Our Italian Basil is sweet and vibrant in its flavour. Perfect for summoning the scents of Italy straight onto your homemade dishes. We love it as a garnish on our pizzas and salads, or just as the real star of the dish in a delicious pesto.
Basil's brother from Southeast Asia has more robust leaves. They remain more vibrant during cooking compared to sweet basil, which is usually added to the dish before serving. It has a slightly spicy, liquorice-like flavour. On the outside, Thai Basil has a darker stem and small, sturdy leaves with serrated edges.
Our Greek Basil is the younger Mediterranean sibling of the common basil, with just a more distinctive flavour. Its stronger-tasting leaves are smaller, but all the better for dressing your Mediterranean dishes.
Our Shiso is the Japanese member of the mint family. Its large purple leaves produce a slightly bitter taste with hints of mint and cinnamon. We use it in many of our Asian dishes, especially to garnish tofu or fish. Mixed with soy sauce and sesame oil, it makes a delicious marinade for grilled chicken.
Within the basil family, our Lemon Basil is the more pungent sibling, and brings along a fresh citrus aroma. Perfect for making dishes light and zingy, it works well across Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines in curries and fish. We also love to combine it with fruits like papayas and berries for a fresh summer delight.
Coriander, the famous controversial herb - either loved or hated. We like to add this citrusy fragranced classic to our curries, salads and soups. It is frequently used in South American and Thai cuisine - especially to counterbalance the many spices.
Our Chives give your dips, salads, eggs and potato dishes an extra kick. As a milder version of onion and garlic flavour, they are usually perfectly enjoyable for everyone. They have a mild, sweet to savoury, pungent flavour.
A.I. and technological breakthroughs in agriculture have boosted production efficiency and sustainability. Thanks to new technologies we can grow more with less – More diversity, less scarcity.
We grow more with less to make Vertical Farming products available for everyone. By taking care of all steps in between, we have built strong expertise in the fields ofesign, construction, operation and marketing.
Our farms offer space for collaborative research with Swiss institutions to enhance our knowledge on vertical farming and sustainable agriculture. YASAI is currently collaborating with ZHAW, Agroscope, and Fenaco as part of an InnoSuisse initiative.
Automated internal logistics & lift system
Our partners have created an ingenious automated logistics system that transports our plants to us. By eliminating the need for corridors, the logistics system maximises space and saves labour costs. Additionally, it enhances crop protection by eliminating the need for humans to enter the grow chamber.
Automated farm process
From seed to store, several processes are labour intensive and thereby require human capital. In conjunction with leading firms, we are hard at work developing solutions to automate tedious and repetitive tasks such as sowing, harvesting, cleaning, and packaging.
Climate control systems for optimal growth
Our climate control system provides the ideal conditions for optimal growth. Together with our partners, we can guarantee harvest all year round— in any climate or environment imaginable.
Smart Farming with big data & grow recipes
Our farms are constantly learning. Each plant is unique and requires a specific combination of light frequencies, climate, nutrient composition, and growth cycle. Over time, we gather data and learn how to improve our growth and create products with the best taste and nutritional value possible.
Circularity as a driver for change
Circularity is in our DNA. Everything we do is in accordance with our zero-waste policy. We view waste as a resource and strive to establish circular systems. Heat, organic waste, nutrients from wastewater, and even unused space are all reused or repurposed. Our vertical farms are built on the principles of a circular economy.
We see Vertical Farms as an infrastructure for future "smart edible cities." Our design is rooted in circularity:
We reuse waste heat of our LEDs as a resource to heat up other spaces. We benefit from existing CO2 to promote & accelerate plant growth and turn organic waste and wastewater into nutrients.
All our organic waste will be transformed to clean energy in bio gas plants.
