Fischer Farms attracts commercial interest ahead of vertical farm launch

Vertical Farming company Fischer Farms, has enjoyed a good start to 2022 with commercial interest in its approach to sustainable and responsible farming.

The business has received many inquiries from retailers and food chain suppliers, ahead of its second site launch later this year, with the growing space to provide 6.5 tons of leaf salads and herbs to UK supermarkets every day.  

This success follows major investment in its board of directors, including the appointment of renowned food innovator, John Stapleton as Non-Executive Chairman. Having led the way in the sector for almost 35-years, John has been instrumental in introducing Fischer Farms to key market prospects.

John is working closely with Tristan Fischer, founder and CEO of Fischer Farms, and his team, to scale-up operations. This has commenced with the production of short leafy green salad products and will soon expand into soft berries, other fruits, vegetables and ultimately staples such as rice, soya beans and wheat, all grown at a price point that compares favorably to current farming prices.  

John said: “Sitting at the cutting edge of vertical farming, we have invested in the very latest technology and techniques, from LED lighting to 100% renewable energy sources. Today, we are poised for significant growth, with the launch of our large-scale revolutionary vertical farm set to open in Norfolk later this year. The potential of this pioneering site, combined with our proven track record and strong financial backing, has positioned Fischer Farms as a key player in the fresh produce sector.
