The Future of Food
Vertegrow is growing for a fast-changing world. Consumers demand fresh, nutritious, flavourful and healthy food all year round. Provenance, traceability and food security have never been more critical. Vertical farming addresses all of these issues and more. From our Aberdeenshire site, Vertegrow is at the forefront of the movement.
Vertical farming allows Vertegrow to grow consistent, high quality crops. We are focussed on crops which are otherwise not viable in the United Kingdom and on improving the nutritional value and flavour of our crops. We are not stopping there though - we are passionate about improving and expanding our range and working closely with our customers to meet their needs.
For Vertegrow, growing vertically means growing indoors in a total controlled environment. A temperature and humidity controlled hydroponic system means that we supply only the nutrients that our crops need and we can minimise the energy and water requirements. We can also reduce our building footprint, freeing farmland up for other uses, like tree planting and regeneration.
Plants, People, Planet
Building on the efficiency of vertical farming, Vertegrow will also be harvesting rainwater for our crops, using renewable energy and growing and selling locally (not shipping crops halfway round the world). Vertegrow is on a mission to provide quality, nutritious, tasty and accessible food in a carbon neutral way. We also strive to be a responsible company and a great place to work. Let’s grow better food and have fun doing it.
