Some main conclusions from the summit were:

  • Focus on one product first and make that one viable, then focus on other niche crops such as berries or others.
  • The crucial aspect of co-locating your vertical farm somewhere close to sites or factories with waste streams, distribution networks, renewable energy plants, producers with excessive heat, and so on.
  • How the current energy crisis helps growers to rethink their resource consumption in general- do I have to pivot my business model to actually become more efficient in production?
  • The shift from traditional farming to high-tech farming is attracting a much younger generation to move into farming again.
  • When it comes to price points, sometimes it could be more beneficial to aim below the premium and become mainstream first to gain market share, then expand.
  • The power of a brand: how it helps to communicate the benefits of vertical farming to consumers.
