Join the virtual tour at Plant Factory

Plant Factory, an Istanbul-based vertical farm, takes us along on a virtual visit in the newly constructed facility, PF001. The factory produces 5000 crops per harvest and around 4000kg of basil per year.

"Once we can obtain the level of mass production we can lower our costs and we can reach the middle class of the society," says Halil Beşkardeşler, CEO of Plant Factory.   

In the upcoming months, the facility will be focusing on the production of different types of lettuce, basil and arugula followed by other leafy greens analysis, testing and production. PF001 will generate part of its energy from installed photovoltaic panels on the roof. “In this way, we aim to benefit from renewable energy sources and lower the unit product costs," says Halil.
