An introduction to vertical farming: sustainable food security for a changing world

Finding solutions to the challenges posed by an over-reliance on global supply chains has perhaps never been higher up the agenda than in the present day. COVID-19 and the resultant global movement restrictions have brought questions of provenance, security and sustainability to the fore, and it is vital that we take this opportunity as a chance to bring about a greener food recovery.

At IGS, we believe that vertical farming has a key role to play in the future of sustainable agriculture, working alongside traditional farmers and food producers to deliver a consistent, reliably high-quality product regardless of location.

Our latest publication is an introductory guide to vertical farming, aimed at those who are:

  • Interested in learning more about vertical farming;

  • Undertaking due diligence prior to starting their own vertical farming facility; or

  • Enhancing their existing operation

Through this piece, we aim to provide a fair and balanced view, backed by the latest data and without unsubstantiated assertions.
