NZ: Indoor farm in Hamilton commences operations

Elevate Farms and Greengrower have commenced operations at Greengrower's first indoor farm in Hamilton, New Zealand, powered by Elevate Farms' patented ‎proprietary ‎technology‎.  ‎

The farm features a fully autonomous grow room with products already available at local grocery stores on the ‎North Island, one of the two main islands of New Zealand. The farm produces over 4,000 bags for retail distribution daily from its current site, with plans underway ‎for further expansion of this capacity‎.  ‎
