Food shortage is a global problem. Each time the population is greater, the need to feed does not stop growing and also climate change and overexploitation of the soil threatens our possibilities to nourish all populations. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) was already talking in 2011 of a deadline, 2050, in which we could run out of food for the entire planet. But what if there were alternative solutions to produce more food with fewer resources? That is exactly the point of vertical farms.
The vertical farms market is predominantly driven by the following key factors, which are discussed in grater detail throught this report that you can download:
- Increasing demand for organic food products
- Growing population
- Increasing pressure to create more sustainable farming methods
- Scarcity of land suitable for growing crops
