Stabilizing the Produce Supply with Vertical Farms
Quality and supply issues continue to stress the produce category and cause price volatility for suppliers, distributors, retailers, and consumers. More and more food industry leaders are turning to vertical farming as an innovative solution to insource reliable supply, reduce costs, and enhance sustainability.
Vertical Farming Benefits for Food Organizations
There are countless cost-driven benefits gained across the supply chain and crucial health benefits for customers and consumers that are enabled by vertical farm operations, specifically AmplifiedAg.
Health & Planet Conscious Consumers
More than ever before, consumers are conscious of the origin of their food, and how it gets to them. Indoor grown produce meets the consumers’ demand for food that is fresh, healthy, nutritious, locally grown, has zero pesticides, and is produced with less harm to the planet.
Private Label & Proprietary Produce
The demand for private label products continues to grow as the buyers’ preference over national brands. Ability to customize proprietary and private label produce lines to serve various consumers and business networks.
Supplier Network Partnerships
Through the involvement and operation of a trusted supplier or grower network, food organizations are positioned to drive and diversify their produce offerings and support suppliers with new farming innovation. Additionally, increased local and farm community commitment by providing new job opportunities.
Favorable Unit Economics
Controllable and predictable supply, consistent high quality, minimized shrink, extended shelf life of produce, and the elimination of mass distribution results in higher profit margin for food organizations and cost savings for customers.
Sustainability and Brand Reputation
Enhance leadership in sustainability (ESG) and food innovation to your consumers, communities and vested partner networks. Reduced environmental impact associated with food waste, food miles (from distribution and imports), water usage, and the use of pesticides.
