In 2050, an estimated seven billion people will be living in cities. The enormous increase in the urban population raises an important question: how to provide seven billion people with fresh and healthy food while simultaneously contributing to a better and more sustainable world?
With GrwNxt our goal is to create a fresh food infrastructure in megacities, promising both food safety and security. Fresh food production in cities, tailored to local preferences, 365 days a year.
Our systems are built on deep knowledge and proven technologies by world leaders in the Dutch Horti-Ecosystem. By using the most advanced indoor farming techniques, such as cutting-edge data analytics and innovative LED-lighting, we can grow crops pesticide-free with minimum use of water, waste streams and CO2 emissions.
