Unfortunately, there are still too many regions in the world where fresh food is a luxury. A large number of countries still import most of their leafy greens and vegetables, which on average require a journey of more than 2,400 kilometers (1,500 miles) before they are finally consumed.
Huvster by Verde Compacto was founded in 2016 with a clear purpose and vision: to reconnect the world with fresh, locally grown food while helping countries reduce carbon emissions.
"After nearly 5 years, we are still as motivated to pursue this mission as we were when we started. We are fortunate to have seen a growing demand for hydroponic equipment in the United States and, as the market develops further, this growth is expected to continue. As a result, we have decided that it is time for us to share our knowledge and experience with the rest of the world as well," the team with Huvster announces.
With this goal in mind, the company is proud to announce the creation of their first international office in Europe. Europe is made up of many individual countries, all dealing with their own problems in agriculture. In Western and Southern Europe, growing urban areas and increasing droughts are requiring structural changes in food supply lines. At the same time, farming as a profession is becoming less and less popular and most nations are increasingly dependent on "fresh" food imports. However, there remains a lot of unused space in these urban areas, space that could be used to move agricultural practices from the countryside to the heart of a city. London, for example, has seen many vertical farms popping up all over the city, from rooftops to subway tunnels, and even inside homes. By relocating food production in this way, people can eat more healthily, farming as a profession can become more attractive again, old farms can return to nature, and the quality of food will be higher.
Therefore, the company's role in Europe will be aimed at helping existing businesses to address the issues within their respective regions and also to help local people gain easier access to fresh and healthy food that they did not already have access to.
