KRISPR: a movement for better agriculture in the UAE

Krispr wanted to change food production by moving their farms from far and away, to the cities where their produce is eaten — using less land. Krispr's indoor vertical farm cultivates nutritious, fresh, beyond organic produce — all year round. The hyperlocal farm-to-table produce can be delivered to customers within a few hours of harvest ensuring peak nutrition and optimal freshness. 

Krispr is tackling the GCC region's food security challenges head-on by building a movement for better agriculture, helping to transform food production and reverse nutritional decline without damaging the planet.  

Using closed-loop water-saving nutrient systems and indoor environmental controls, Krispr's farms can create the ideal conditions for plants to thrive, so they can grow within urban centers, even in harsh conditions. Here is a selection of their produce:

Baby Butterhead
Equal parts tender and crisp, sweet, and slightly bitter. Great to create a salad and equally delicious in a sandwich — delivering on taste as well as texture. An excellent source of vitamins C and K, calcium, and iron.

Baby Kale
A delicate yet crunchy flat Toscano variety that is packed full of vitamin A, C, and K. Versatile enough to use in a salad, sautéed with a splash of oil, salt, and garlic or baked in the oven for homemade kale chips.

Baby Batavia 
A leaf with a crisp sweetness. Its curled leaves are full of fresh flavor, minerals, and nutrients like the all-important vitamin K. Perfect as the base of a centerpiece salad and delicious paired with a light lemon dressing.
