We initiate the creation of joint ventures with manufacturers from the pharmaceutical, functional food, cosmetics, and perfumery industries ensuring an uninterrupted supply of raw materials based on vertical farms.
NOT We are not a manufacturer or supplier (of greens, processed foods). These are directions of subsidiaries in our pipeline. The parent organization develops cases and adheres to a growth strategy. We are not a technology provider. As a yield leader, we choose the joint venture format in order to retain our intellectual property. WE ARE We are R&D platform which generates business cases for the food, nutritional supplements, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries via vertical farming. These cases are based on our developments and competencies in the fields of engineering, construction, IT, biotech and agriculture.

the season and weather conditions. Optimal growing conditions are formed by a unique adaptive LED lighting system and a high pressure aeroponic nutritient supply system. TOTAL CONTROL OVER PRODUCTION Automated production management and digital monitoring of cultivation, implemented on the basis of our own solutions, ensure the stability and transparency of key technological processes. FLEXIBILITY AND SCALABILITY Modular growing systems make it possible to quickly accommodate advanced facilities on the basis of fundamentally different sites and achieve maximum efficiency in the use of each unit of production space. HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS Due to the stable microclimate and the absence of dis- eases and pests in production, up to 97% of the plants have a marketable appearance. STABLE SUPPLY OF FRESH GREENS The ability to fine-tune the production cycle allows you to set the timing of the greens’ readiness and receive products with guaranteed quality indicators. NEUTRAL IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT Aeroponic plant nutrition system eliminates the dis- charge of the spent nutrient solution, as the substrates being used are non-hazardous waste and can be reused.
