Plant Factories (also known as indoor farms or vertical farms) are gaining widespread attention over the last few years. Pioneered in Japan, the last few years show an acceleration in the adoption of plant factories in other regions such as the USA, Canada, Europe and South-East Asia. This is possible through the use of LED light that gives new opportunities in the food production chain. Dr Celine Nicole will discuss how this innovative way of producing food can improve the taste and freshness we well as eliminate pesticides.
