VCI Global Limited is collaborating with Agroz Group Sdn Bhd to develop large-scale smart greenhouses to address food security issues.
“Combining VCI Global’s AI capabilities with our expertise and agricultural technologies, this collaboration will provide sustainable solutions to ease the pressure on food production, distribution, and access,” said Gerard Lim, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Agroz Group. Agroz Group is a vertically integrated agtech that provides solutions and services for CEA.
“We believe we can play more than our part by offering our AI expertise in boosting food production. With space being literally limited, the ideal way forward to increase productivity is through CEA greenhouse farming, where crops can be produced all year round. This collaboration will also help Malaysia’s reliance on food imports, easing the pressure on the foreign exchange also,” said Dato’ Victor Hoo, Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of VCI Global. VCI Global is a management consulting company headquartered in Malaysia.
Agroz is currently building vertical farms and greenhouses across Malaysia, with its products available at major restaurants, cafes, hotels, brand supermarkets, neighborhood grocers, and directly to consumers.
