Transporting fresh, farm-grown produce to urban areas is logistically complicated, carbon-intensive, and expensive. Alesca Life's mission is to democratize access to fresh food by creating solutions that enable anyone anywhere to grow the safest, healthiest, and freshest produce in the most environmentally sustainable way possible. Their automated indoor food production system is currently growing the most nutritious vegetables using no pesticides, no soil, no sunlight, around 130 liters of water per month (equivalent to 2 showers), and $10-$15 in electricity per month. Their commercial system uses 20-50 times less water and 20-50 times less land compared to traditional agricultural practices, and drastically cuts down the distance food must travel to arrive at an urban table. The company develops all technology in-house and is actively expanding across the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Korea, and Japan.
