LONDON UK 13 January 2021: UK based Vertical Future has announced plans to deploy their proprietary vertical farming system across the Middle East. This follows ongoing and advanced stage discussions with parties in different countries who have shown interest in using Vertical Future’s systems.

Vertical Future has chosen to partner with GreenBridge, and together, they plan to revolutionise the agricultural landscape, improving food security and population health. The partnership will see Vertical Future bring novel technologies, market networks, plant science expertise, marketing knowledge, data, research and development and operational experience to suitable customers.

GreenBridge, who are known for their technical expertise and constant support for farmers across the Middle East, will play a vital role in the rollout of Vertical Future’s systems; supporting with local relationships, sourcing, logistics, and linguistics. Once vertical farms are in operation, GreenBridge will also offer ongoing services including the supply of seed, maintenance services, and on-site support.

Vertical Future said its approach to engineering and plant science has resulted in a system that allows growers to deliver nutrients via aeroponic or hydroponic means, offering an additional layer of adaptability and flexibility.

These statistics, supported by an experienced team, growing experience, and a credible research and development pipeline but Vertical Future in pole position for fast growth in the sector, said a company statement.
