France: New farm opened in Château-Thierry

Founded in 2016 by former financier Gilles Dreyfuss and founder Nicholas Segui, Jungle launched its first production site in Château-Thierry, France. The company plans to open two more farms by the end of 2022 and hopes to become the biggest vertically farmed produce supplier in the country.

Two production towers operate with platforms that are 10m high. “By the end of this year, we will have nineteen towers,” Jungle president Gilles Dreyfus told AFP. 

A tower can produce 400,000 plants a year. When all is said and done, the 38-year-old former financier explained that the annual production would be 8 million plants.
