How Bustanica collaborated with Philips LED creating a unique light recipe

Located next to Dubai airport, Bustanica produces more than 1 million leafy greens annually. Bustanica is one of the biggest vertical farming facilities in the world with a 3 Ha growth area and 27 rooms with individual climates to control the production of leafy green fully. The results: the cleanest, hygienic, and most sustainable leafy greens.

“The objective of the farm is to make sure we have the cleanest and most hygienic product in a sustainable way to serve on emirates flights,” Kieran Dowd, Vice President of Sourcing Solutions Emirates flight catering

Lighting is essential at Bustanica vertical farming facility. The unique light recipe helps leafy greens to grow stronger and healthier. Philips LED has provided them with the most suitable light efficacy with the minimum number of LEDs required to achieve the best results in the Bustanica vertical farming facility. Customers highly appreciate the taste and the freshness of the leafy greens, but more importantly, the cleanliness and hygiene of the products. Therefore, Bustanica works closely with Philips horticulture for continuous improvement to deliver sustainable, high-quality products.
