AeroFarms expands with new commercial VF in Qatar
Added on 06 December 2022
“AeroFarms is committed to reimagining how and where our food is grown, and we are excited to expand further in Qatar as part of our longer-term commitment to the Middle East and North African region to enable local production and increase greater food resiliency,” said David Rosenberg, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Newark, NJ-based AeroFarms. “QFZA and DVC are great partners that share a similar long-term vision for how AgTech can positively disrupt and transform our food system in the face of increased macro pressures with traditional field farming.”
The new commercial indoor vertical farm in Qatar will deploy AeroFarms’ latest generation of proprietary growing technology, increasing local food production and making high-quality food products available locally throughout the year.
As a press release noted, AeroFarms specialty greens are safely grown indoors in state-of-the-art commercial indoor vertical farms that are certified via SQF Level 2 Good Manufacturing Practices, USDA Good Agricultural Practices, Non-GMO Project Verification, and the industry-leading CEA Food Safety Seal. The result? Specialty greens that are completely pesticide-free and are ready to eat, thus providing a key benefit to shoppers demanding safety and convenience.
