After a weekend of resting our feet and structuring the gathered business cards, it’s time to look back at GreenTech and find out who was actually there. We of course might have missed some of you, but nonetheless, the vertical farming sector was well-presented during the event from exhibitors to visitors.
Overview of trends
As it might be that not everyone has read last Friday’s article due to traveling or sleeping in, let’s quickly repeat the main topics that were discussed at the event. Suppliers, from greenhouse to solemn vertical farming, let slip that the material shortages have been a huge pain in the past year, and this year. But unfortunately, it seems to get worse and worse. The smallest materials, such as screws or a wheel for conveyor systems can barely get a hold of anymore.
Whereas on the other hand, we’ve spoken to some suppliers that have great projects coming up. These are not just executed in a specific continent, but gladly, these projects are going to take place internationally, which means the industry continues to thrive.
For the growers, it seems to be hard to get a hold of nutrients as these are getting more pricey by the day. Some cannot keep up with demand and are planning to do new funding rounds and get ready to expand their production. That doesn’t let slip that many are still innovating with various crops, such as cherry tomatoes and berry crops. Anyhow, that will be written about very soon!
Now it’s time to spot yourself in the photo report.
