FuelPositive Corporation signed an agreement with Lenore Newman of the University of Fraser Valley, naming her FuelPositive's Global Food Security Advisor.
The Director of the Food and Agriculture Institute at the University of the Fraser Valley, she is a leading researcher, author, and past Canada Research Chair in Food Security. Dr. Newman researches agricultural land use policy, agricultural technology, and bioengineering in the global food system.
FuelPositive also formed a partnership with the CEA Research Facility at the University of Guelph. The research facility's work is focused on CEA (greenhouses and vertical farming).
"As a company dedicated to sustainability, reversing climate change, and global food security, we are exploring opportunities and actively engaging with new partners who share our values. Lenore and the team at the University of Guelph are perfectly aligned with us to help us make inroads into this exciting and critical area of agriculture," said FuelPositive CEO and Board Chair Ian Clifford.
"I'm excited by FuelPositive's attention to controlled environment agriculture and the relationship with the team at the University of Guelph. In my work with automation systems and robotics over the years, I've had the gratification of designing innovative technologies to improve productivity and cost for the food industry in general and also specifically for greenhouse applications. I look forward to our exploration into these crucial global food security markets with our innovative technology," said Nelson Leite, Chief Operating Officer, FuelPositive.
