CEA: a game changer for retail?
In recent years, the agricultural landscape has been revolutionized by the advent of Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA), where cutting-edge technology converges with sustainable practices to cultivate vegetables and fruits in controlled environments like greenhouses and vertical farms. Retailers and consumers can benefit from CEA in multiple ways. Think of predictable harvests, efficient space utilization, year-round supply, locally grown produce, and more. Next to that, CEA can cater to specific needs, and customization allows for unique products tailored to preferences. This makes it easier to meet niche market demands effectively. Last but not least, CEA plays a big role in the current challenges the world is facing. With continuous advancements in technology and growing environmental awareness, the stage is set for controlled environment agriculture to flourish, providing fresh, high-quality produce while safeguarding our planet's resources for generations to come.
World Horti Center is happy to announce that Roel Janssen, Head of Product and Business Development at Planet Farms; Simone van der Steeg, Sourcing Manager for the Fresh Fruit Category at Albert Heijn; and Johan Vis, Marketing Specialist Tomato, Lettuce, and Leafies at Rijk Zwaan form the panel of three during this sixth webinar.
