Foundation farms joins forces with Econic to deploy indoor farming tech

"This arrangement will multiply our growth potentials"

Foundation Farms are pleased to announce that their respective subsidiaries, Foundation Farms (GMEV subsidiary) and Econic (ZAAG subsidiary) have verbally agreed to collaborate in the manufacturing and deployment of their respective indoor farming technologies.

Econic, owner of a 15,000 square foot manufacturing facility builds, owns and operates containerized grow pods for the production of cannabis medical products. Foundation Farms business is to build, own, and operate indoor vertical farms for the production of leafy greens and associated food products. The collaborative arrangement will provide opportunities for mutual capital cost savings in both equipment procurement and assembly labor. Key components of the respective technologies such as LED lighting systems, pumps and controls and tanks are common to both companies. Secondly, both companies intend to share their respective market opportunities.

The first two steps in this working arrangement have already been taken. Foundation Farms is leasing a portion of the Econic facility to house the company's first vertical farm in Red Deer, Alberta. Secondly, Econic announced last week that one of its First Nations customers for future cannabis grow pods has signed a Letter of Agreement to lease a leafy greens vertical farm. As part of that announcement, Econic reported that it is forwarding this business opportunity to Foundation Farms.
