A large vertical greenhouse in Romania, located in Prahova, will become operational in November. Fresh Microgreens has invested 2.2 million euros in two projects that will supply the companies Eisberg and Kaufland.
The microgreens producer Fresh Microgreens will start production in two new vertical farms, in Tătărani and Ploiesti, following an investment of over 2.2 million euros. The production in Ploiesti is dedicated to the German retailer Kaufland, and the baby leaves from the Tătărani farm will represent the raw material for the salads produced by Eisberg, a producer of packaged salads in Romania.
The unit at Tătărani will be operational from November. It was made in collaboration with Eisberg, which will also take over production in the form of baby leaves from different species.
The production unit in Ploiesti, made in collaboration with the retailer Kaufland, will start in September, now being in a "period of fine adjustments to optimize production, according to the assortment agreed with Kaufland, the beneficiary of this project," according to the company.
Basically, Fresh Microgreens makes the investment, operates the production facility, and predictably sells to a large consumer. The partnership between the two is a supplier-beneficiary type.
