Harvest London set to build VF in the Croydon suburbs

A LISTED investment manager has injected funds into vertical farming firm Harvest London to build a cutting-edge site near Croydon.

Harvest has built two farms in the capital so far and partnered with brands including Pizza Pilgrims to deliver locally-grown produce with minimal environmental impact.
