Kate Hofman, Founder and Chief Brand Officer of GrowUp, a leader in sustainable agriculture, is a finalist in the 2023 Barclays Entrepreneur Awards in the Sustainability Category. 

The Barclays Entrepreneur Awards celebrate businesses driving innovation and positive change. This category recognises individuals’ ushering in a more sustainable world. Kate’s nomination reflects GrowUp’s commitment to sustainable agriculture. 

Over the past decade, GrowUp Farms have transformed the vertical farming industry – from a small aquaponic shipping container in London to Pepperness in Kent, the first vertical farm to launch a bagged salad brand in a major UK supermarket. Using on-site renewable energy, GrowUp Farms grows food with a lighter environmental footprint.  

The winners of the 2023 Barclays Entrepreneur Awards, including the Sustainability Category, will be revealed in November.  

GrowUp Farms has also been nominated for the People’s Choice Award – and we need your help to win! 

This award is decided by a public vote, and you have until September 29th to show your support.
