Technology company Vertical Future has partnered with GreenBridge to accelerate the deployment of vertical farms in the Middle East.
Based in London, Vertical Future specialises in controlled-environment agriculture and claims that its vertical farming technology offers a number of advantages over other systems.
According to Vertical Future, its system allows growers to deliver nutrients via aeroponic or hydroponic means, and produces approximately 172% more per cubic metre, when compared with other leading providers’ vertical farming technology.
The company has announced plans to deploy its vertical farming system across the Middle East, following “ongoing and advanced-stage discussions” with parties interested in using its systems.
The partnership with GreenBridge is expected to play a key role in the rollout, with the agriculture company supporting Vertical Future with local relationships, sourcing, logistics and linguistics.
Once vertical farms are in operation, GreenBridge – which has reportedly been active in the Middle East region for the past 30 years – will offer ongoing services including the supply of seed, maintenance services and on-site support.
