Vertical farms on the rise

Ambitious plans for vertical farm expansion could look to turn the tide on seasonality, by diminishing the need for out of season imports.

Edinburgh-based start-up Shockingly Fresh has unveiled its plans to build more than 40 indoor vertical farms over the next five years, securing the rights to one site in Scotland and four in England, covering a total of 50 hectares.

The start-up has claimed the indoor farms will be capable of growing up to five times the amount of greens currently possible with traditional farming methods, using low cost, natural lit vertical farms using hydroponic towers.

Nanoco Group PLC (LON:NANO) leads the world in the research, development and large-scale manufacture of heavy metal-free nanomaterials for use in displays, lighting, vertical farming, solar energy and bio-imaging.
