Home to the most sought-after A.I. talent, some of the fastest growing agtech start-ups, and a fantastically large and engaged indoor farming movement, Canada is a hot-bed for advances in productivity for greenhouse growing, vertical farming and urban agriculture.
The value of Canada’s greenhouse produce crop more than doubled, to $1.3 billion last year from $600 million in 2001, and now eclipses eggs, potatoes or Durum wheat. From Ontario alone, every day about 200 refrigerated transport trucks loaded with greenhouse tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers cross the border, headed to New York, Boston and as far away as Florida. And there are over 250,000 sq ft of indoor crop production facilities in Toronto city centre, with 50 community, private and government organisations driving government policy review and land reform to boost this sector that is hugely popular with Canadian consumers.
Hosting an exhibition, main stage conference, innovations theatre, partner workshops and a meetings programme, GFIA in Focus Canada will present the latest innovations and technologies for sustainable food production in indoor farming to 1,500 food producers, policy makers, scientists and investors in a market that is expected to experience significant growth over the next few years.
If your company is already a supplier of solutions in Canada and wishes to increase or reinforce its position; or if you wish to break into this vast market then GFIA in Focus Canada delivers an unrivalled opportunity for you to meet 1,500 buyers of sustainable agriculture technology.
