Israeli startup growing ready-to-eat duckweed-based green for daily intake

GreenOnyx has developed a sterile, fully autonomous modular tech farm to grow fresh ready-to-eat duckweed-based green superfood for daily intake.

An Israeli agritech startup that set out on a mission to make highly nutritious superfoods as accessible to the masses as Diet Coke recently revealed what it called the first urban breeding farm to grow and produce fresh, affordable ready-to-eat duckweed-based green “caviar” all year round.

GreenOnyx has developed a sterile and fully autonomous AI-based cloud technology platform that uses advanced farming methods to bio-mimic the natural habitat conditions for growing highly nutritious crops from seed to plate in deep-tech modular farms. By using proprietary technology, the startup grows water-based lentil greens throughout the year in complete sterility without any human intervention, without requiring any agricultural land, and independent of weather conditions.

The startup is backed by a number of investors, including billionaire and serial entrepreneur Marius Nacht, the Granot Group, and Ruti Broudo, co-founder of the R2M hospitality and restaurant group. Aharon Fogel, former chairman of Migdal Insurance & Financial Holdings Ltd., serves as the chairman of GreenOnyx.
