Urban farming within the corporate sector
Geert Hendrix, CEO, Farmwall (partners with Eponic and Sonaray)
More than 54% of the world’s population live in cities, growing at a rate of 2% every 5 years. These densely populated urban areas are associated with reduced overall wellness as well as a huge environmental footprint. Within this population, time-poor urbanites have a rising expectation for transparency in the food chain, putting pressure on businesses to embed sustainable products and services into the work and hospitality environment. With the help of pioneering full spectrum LED lighting by Sonaray, Farmwall is leveraging this workforce and the built environment to implement enhanced technology, sustainable agriculture—creating ‘cities that feed our planet’, whilst improving the social health of its inhabitants.
