AGRICULTURE REIMAGINED

 

IGS’s business is vertical farming

Our mission is to enable our customers to be the lowest cost producers in their market.

The benefits of Vertical Farming

N

GROW LOCAL, GLOBALLY

  • Producing beside the market collapses food miles, cutting costs
  • It also increases food security, by reducing dependency on imports
  • ‘Farm to fork’ within hours every day, 365 days of the year, increasing both freshness and shelf life
N

BETTER QUALITY

  • Product appearance, nutritional qualities and taste are improved and remain consistent year round
  • Disease-free growing eliminates need for pesticides
  • Semi-hydroponic techniques eliminate need for washing, reducing contamination
N

SAVING NATURAL RESOURCES

 

  • Small building footprint frees farm land for alternative use, e.g. energy crops and conservation
  • Highly efficient growing media and temperature management reduces water consumption by more than 90% with minimal effluent
N

DECLINING COST

  • Driven by the collapsing cost of LEDs and improving electrical efficiency
  • Compression of the value chain reduces number of participants taking a margin
