Location: Food & Energy Campus Gross-Gerau GmbH (Germany)
Indoor farming containers for microgreens, herbs and salads with innovative irrigation systems, distribution to regional wholesalers, farm shops, gastronomy and direct sales.
There is a demand in the region for locally grown produce that can be supplied all year round. The proximity to Frankfurt Airport allows catering companies to be included in the distribution concept. The Gross-Gerau region was chosen for the biogas facility due to the location's excellent conditions for cultivation and distribution. Since winter 2021, the team at Food & Energy Campus Gross-Gerau GmbH has been producing microgreens, herbs, and salads – in the region, for the region.
In May 2020, the company shares of "Food & Energy Campus Gross-Gerau GmbH" were acquired and the approval procedure was initiated. The indoor farming facility was gradually put into operation at the end of 2021. Local marketing is already underway. At the same time, further tests are being conducted to continuously develop and optimise the modules.
