An environmental champion, AeroFarms is leading the way to address our global food crisis by building, owning, and operating indoor vertical farms that grow safe, healthy, and flavorful food in a sustainable and socially responsible way. Setting a new standard for totally protected agriculture from seed to package, they have been fundamentally transforming agriculture by disintermediating the supply chain by bringing local commercial farming to where the consumer is. All of their technology is proprietary, and they are vertically integrated with expertise and capabilities all in house. Horticulture intersects with Engineering, Food Safety, Data Science, and Nutrition, giving AeroFarms the capability to understand plant biology in a way that has never been understood. And they grow using 95% less water, a fraction of the land and resources, and with yields 390 times higher per square foot annually vs. traditional field farming.

Their passion and expertise honed over the last 13 years is growing delicious food with uncompromising quality that has been optimized for taste, texture, color, nutrition, and yield. They have grown over 250 varieties of leafy green vegetables and have grown other types of crops as well.
