Peter Pane partners with Mana Farms

Founded in February 2021, Mana Farms in Leipzig is among the newest start-ups in the 2bAhead Ventures capital fund’s portfolio. And like most start-ups, it is focused on addressing a particular market need presently on the rise or just around the corner. As the name suggests, Mana Farms is developing indoor farming systems for growing leafy greens like microgreens and salads indoors.

Driven by their mantra, “nothing beats fresh,” the company set out to create a product that could deliver greens to the gastronomy sector in a way they’d never seen before. They developed a semi-enclosed environment for greens to grow year-round. In so doing, the Mana Micro Farm grants the gastronomer complete independence from weather and seasonal availability. Even more importantly, freedom from supply chain hassles. Moreover, the variety of crops growable in the system is expanding. 

Since its inception, Peter Pane Burgergrill & Bar has publicly voiced its commitment to becoming more sustainable. In this way, it plays a part in reducing its carbon footprint. But with forty restaurants spread throughout Germany, that is no small task. Since sustainability was one of the main goals of the Mana Farms design approach, the partnership made perfect sense.
