Vertical farming in a crowded world

Sector: Futurefood
Themes:

Aerofarms grow delicious, nutritious leafy greens and herbs without sunlight and soil. Crops get the perfect amount of moisture and nutrients misted directly onto their roots in a completely controlled environment. With patented technology, Aerofarms take indoor vertical farming to a new level of precision and productivity with minimal environmental impact and virtually zero risk.

AeroFarms is on a mission to transform agriculture by building and operating environmentally responsible farms throughout the world to enable local production at scale and nourish our communities with safe, nutritious, and delicious food.

Founded in 2004, AeroFarms is led by CEO David Rosenberg who has been recognized by the World Economic Forum as one of the “Transformational Leaders in Agriculture”.

The New Jersey-based company has been charting a course toward a new standard for totally-controlled agriculture since 2004. They disrupt traditional supply chains by building farms on major distribution routes and near population centers. They defy traditional growing seasons by enabling local farming at commercial scale all-year round. They set a new standard for traceability by managing our greens from seed to package. And they do it all while using 95% less water than field farmed-food and with yields 390 times higher per square foot annually.

Aerofarms passion is great tasting food and sharing our harvest with the world. They recently began growing at our ninth farm — the world’s largest indoor vertical farm and our new global headquarters in Newark, NJ (pictured). There has been tremendous demand for our locally grown, delicious, produce, and they have farms in development in multiple US states and on four continents. There has never been a greater need for safe, dependable, nutritious food, and they are scaling quickly to transform agriculture around the world.
