More about Kate »
We grow better food at low prices that shoppers love. We’re turning food production on its head to make way better food that doesn’t cost the earth, by applying our renewable energy and vertical farming expertise and building a global platform for sustainable production in perfect conditions

GrowUp Farms has been acquired.

Notable Achievements

  • Raised over £6.7m to date from fresh produce businesses, family offices and HNW
  • Our salads are better tasting (they win blind taste tests) and longer lasting (16 days shelf life compared to 5 in the market)
  • We reduce waste in the supply chain (by >70%), use less water (>90% and no need for chlorine washing) and grow with zero pesticides.
