How we grow
Our plants are grown with no nasties in our Kent-based vertical farm.
We use 100% renewable energy to create the perfect, clean growing environment, 365 days a year.
What happens on the farm
We use green energy to simulate the best possible growing conditions for our plants, extending the season for UK-grown produce. Anyone for luscious, local lettuce, all year round?
The set-up of our farm allows us to maximise the space, growing as many plants as possible — much more than on the same amount of traditionally farmed space.
Because we don’t add any pesticides or other yucky stuff, there’s no need to wash our plants. Saying goodbye to the traditional, post-pick chlorine bath keeps our leaves dry so they stay fresher for longer.
Our team pack the plants quickly and carefully. Our leaves get into bags and onto your shelves ASAP.
What this means
On average, the UK wastes almost 60% of the bagged salad we buy. At the same time, most of this comes from abroad, meaning lots of food miles and less-than-fresh food on the shelves.
Using vertical farms means producing higher-quality plants that last longer on your shelves and in customers’ fridges. No more wilted leaves here.
For customers, it’s much better value. They’re less likely to have to throw gone-off food out and they’ll get to enjoy delicious, fresh plants, every day of the year..
And for the planet, it’s a game-changer. We’re saving 2.7 million food miles a year with our UK-grown leaves, reducing emissions, and helping the UK be more self-sufficient. As a bonus, we can produce plants that usually couldn’t grow in this country (either during the winter or at all).
