Several companies have proven they can successfully grow various crops indoors with exceptional yields, but few of them are operating with a positive cash flow without continued investments.
The prospects for 2023 are likely to call for the adoption of a strategy shift by indoor growers, one which will involve minimising costs by scaling down their business models to focus more on profitability.
Whether it's outfitting a brand new structure or upgrading an existing one, cooling a greenhouse efficiently requires the right mixture of airflow, cooling power and shading.

EGO Announces New Partnership with John Deere to Drive Innovation in the Outdoor Power Equipment (OPE) Industry
HONG KONG, July 5, 2023 - (ACN Newswire) - Chervon Holdings Limited (2285.HK) recently announced a strategic agreement with John Deere. This enables EGO branded battery products to be sold through John Deere dealers, and both parties will also collaborate on developing new products in the future.
In the fast-paced concrete jungle of Hong Kong, vertical farms and urban farms are sprouting up, bringing renewed energy to the agricultural landscape and a burst of green to unexpected places.
A method of cultivating crops on a vertically tilted surface in an urban environment is known as vertical farming. Crops are grown vertically in stacks rather than in a single layer across a wide area of land. In contrast to traditional farming, vertical farming uses technologies to create an artificial environment inside a facility that enables plants to grow quickly and with high nutritional value. The market for vertical farming is expanding due to its requirement for minimal resources such as land, water, and labor, as well as its ability to sustain annual crop production irrespective of weather conditions. Additionally, the rising demand for organic food is also contributing to this growth.

NatureSweet® Becomes World's Largest Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) Company to Achieve B Corp Certification
Greenhouse-Grown Produce Company Recognized for Sustainability Efforts and Community Initiatives that are Transforming the Agricultural Industry
In an era marked by increasing environmental challenges, the CEA industry has emerged as a beacon of hope. With traditional agriculture facing obstacles ranging from climate change to rising costs, indoor farming has been presented as one of the key solutions. While some companies have encountered setbacks and even bankruptcy, it is crucial to recognize the long-term benefits and indispensability of CEA for the future of our food production systems. Traditional agriculture has long been the backbone of our food supply, but relying solely on it is no longer viable in the face of numerous challenges. To overcome the obstacles, we must supplement traditional methods with indoor farming. By doing so, we create a resilient system that can withstand and adapt to these evolving challenges.
