Vertical Farming (Pty) Ltd
Vertical Farming (Pty) Ltd specializes in sustainable hydroponic farming solutions. The company's main focus is in creating Controlled Growing Environments (CGEs) that include: Hydroponic Tunnels; Shipping Container Farms - GROCUBE; and Urban Greenhouse/Warehouse Hydroponic Farms. Vertical Farming also offers its own range of LED grow lights for indoor growing. The company's exciting journey into “hydroponics” started in 2015 when it designed a small innovative pop-up farm aimed at the growing urban home market. In 2016, Vertical Farming won the SAMSUNG/METIME invention of the year award, and the “GROYUM” hydroponic pop-up farm was born. From there, the company wanted to create something bigger for the commercial farming sector, and started work on the GROCUBE – a complete hydroponic farm inside a 40ft shipping container, that can grow 3,312 plants in only 27m². Working together with an engineering team from Cape town, Vertical Farming came up with its own LED grow light, using OSRAM LED technology, resulting in amazing results growing different leafy green crops and strawberries. The company believes the future of sustainable farming is hydroponics and controlled environment farming.
