Kuwait Agro Co. has partnered with &ever, which has launched Kuwait’s first automated large-scale vertical farm. Under its &Ever Kuwait brand, the vertical farm cultivates a wide range of fresh leafy greens and herbs. The Wafra-based farm can produce up to 550 kilograms of fresh greens and herbs a day.
Kuwait Agro will ensure daily freshness by delivering their produce from the farm to the shelf within two hours. &Ever hopes to build on the success of this partnership with Kuwait Agro by transforming the way greens and herbs are grown and consumed with their plans to build more sustainable farms throughout Africa and Asia.
Commenting on this venture, Makram Malaeb, Kuwait Agro CEO, said “being a producer of local exquisite Yasmin Farms products and a grower of selective fruits and vegetables, we highly believe in the need of local production for future sustainability. We are proud of this venture with &ever Kuwait.”
Faisal AlMeshal, Director at &Ever Kuwait, added, “After the success of launching &Ever’s first farm in the region, we are excited about enhancing our sales and distribution capabilities through this partnership with Kuwait Agro, distributor of fruits and vegetables. We cannot wait for our products to reach all our customers at their favorite grocery shopping destinations.”
