The first Leafood farm has been officially opened in Vilnius, Lithuania. Celebrated by many invitees, CEO Valentinas Civinskas happily welcomed all guests to the company's vertical farm.

An investment of 6 million euros in total delivered the company an initial footprint of 4000m2 in a 7200m2 facility. For now, the company will be producing leafy greens and herbs. As Valentinas mentioned, Lithuanians consume about 10,000kg of lettuce a day. As Leafood's farm is producing about 1 ton per day, that would cover 10% of the domestic consumption.
