In the U.S., an average head of field-grown lettuce travels hundreds of miles across the country before reaching a supermarket display case. Imported produce travels even farther. By the time it reaches store shelves, traditionally grown produce can be from as much as a week or more old, and can have contributed to increaesd CO2 emissions. Infinite Harvest’s vertical farm can deliver a fresh head of lettuce to a local supermarket within 24 to 48 hours of harvest.
For example, Infinite Harvest’s growing technology can increase yields by 60% per acre while using 90% less water than traditional farming. Our integrated recycling, composting, and regenerative systems minimize waste while increasing energy and water efficiencies. By serving our local community, we can reduce the carbon footprint of food miles traveled, and provide a fresher product that doesn’t spend days in transit.
